    OK… I got stupid and install this little app called WinMatrix. It adds the Matrix affect to your desktop. I tried it for a bit but got tired of it and uninstalled it. The problem is, now I can’t add the drop shadow affect to my desktop icons! It’s checked but not working. This pisses me right off!! I tried Last known Good but no joy. Is there another setting that I’m missing?
