    Omg My Computer Desktop Icons

    Well I have a problem, not a great one, but a problem.
    My "My Computer" and "My Documents" icon are looking quite odd today, compared to the other icons. I have Windows XP pro, and the icons never looked like this before. I am getting a picture up, what is wrong with my icons?! HELP! THANKS!



    I do know the AO sig rules, I just want a free sig pic, that's all!

    I don't see a problem. Is the background supposed to be black?

    No it looks crappier, and it's just really annoying the crap out of me.

    Did you share your "My Documents" Folder?

    I had this problem man, its all jagged and weird lookin. I couldnt fix it at all, so I downloaded iconpackager (objectdesktop) and got me some new icons.

    Do something for me though, change the background to white or a light colour, because I was getting a strange shadow under the icons at the same time as getting the weird jagged edge thing. If I clicked and dragged the icon to somewhere else on my desktop the shadow went. But if I re-booted it came back. I would be interested in any results you come up with.

    right click on the START button, select properties.

    pick start menu, then ok

    it will make the icons goaway off your desk top.

    right click on the START button, select properties.

    pick classic start menu, then ok

    the icons will come back

    see if it helps
