All of my Windows ME taskbar icons and IE favorites icons have suddenly become washed out/faded looking, almost like they were whitewashed. Desktop icons appear normally. Had installed yahoo instant messenger and thought that might have been the cause so uninstalled it. No change, icons still odd looking. Ran antivirus and nothing found. Don't know what to check next.

Hiya and welcome

Go to Control panel | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Instal on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Then, go to http://forum.aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Regards

eddie
