Alright, well I have a Media Center PC, and the icons always on my desktop only showed the words. This is kind of hard to explain, but now there is a blue box in which the words are in. For Example, My Computer. Before that is all you would see under the little icon; now you see a blue box with white words inside of it saying My Computer. I messed around with all the view properties with no luck.

This whole thing happened to me today after I got some spyware. I have gotten rid of it, but still cannot get my desktop icons the way they were before.

Any ideas?

Hi and Welcome to TSG!

Well from what i can gather, behind the writing (names of icons) there is a blue box?

Or

Is the writing blue?

Kind Regards
Anthony

Sorry.. the box is blue and the writing is white. Before the writing use to be white, but there never was a box... i guess it was clear... any ideas how to fix this?

Howdy,

You can try Press the Windows Logo key + Pause Break key together and in the new window click Advanced then under Performance click Settings ..make sure everything is ticked in the list

If it is then untick use drop shadows for Icons labels on the desktop click OK

Then go back and re-tick it and click OK.

Also look here.


Right click on a empty place on the desktop and choose Properties then Desktop tab

Ten Customize Desktop button then Web tab and make sure nothing is selected in there.

Well, I finally got rid of all the spyware off my computer... and it went back to normal.. I really recommend Uniblue SpyEraser and it's whole product suite. It's amazing how much faster you're computer runs after using the registry booster, speedupmypc, and spyeraser.
