There are these colored boxes around the type under my icons. I want to get rid of them so my wallpaper doesn't look so freaking ugly. I've been trying everything, downloading programs and such which I don't think is good for my computer. What makes me mad though is other people have clear type without having to DL a program, what is wrong with my computer? How do I change it?

This works with XP

Under Control Panel - System - Advanced - Performance - Visual Effects -tick "Use drop shadows for Icon labels on the desktop"
