Do desktop icons display text boxes around their descriptions over a desktop theme?

    Please Help - Have you had this problem?

    When windows loads, there is a delay after the welcome screen appears. This delay occurs after the window screen and before the desktop loads. When the desktop does load, the program icons have text boxes in the background color around the text. The text should appear (in white) with NO COLORED TEXT BOX BACKGROUND - i.e. transparent text over background windows theme or picture.

    I have seen this problem on several computers. How can I fix this problem?

    Right-click on your background, then click properties. On the Desktop tab, click the Customize Desktop button (at the bottom), then click the Web tab.

    Make sure nothing is checked on this page. Save settings if you made any changes.

    Unfortunately, it did not help. I still have blue boxes around my white lettered icon descriptions, (located under each desktop icon) My background image is : Azul. When windows starts, i wait as the welcome screen appears for about 30 seconds before the desktop appears. When the desktop does appear, the program icons load with blue boxes (my default color in display settings) around the text areas situated below each program icons. These blues boxes (they could be any background color) should be transparent allowing the "azul" background to show through. I believe the slow load. blue screen load with icons ... then azul picture background load ... then blue boxes around icon text appear as the icon program images fill in.

    I have seen this problem now on several computers. Can you help?

    Lawrence :)
