On the desktop of my W2k-SP4, icons now appear in dull shades. I was fiddling around with the Activicon software and made a change. The crisp coloring of the icons were then modified to dull on the desktop as well as in the Control Panel.

I can't seem to find the parameter I used which corresponds to the change.

How can I get the original coloring back? Is there something which can be done in the icon cache to reset things.

I tried to rebuild the icons with Tweak UI to no avail.

Display in Control Panel is 16 bits coloring and 1024x768 pixels, as was the case before this incident occurred.

In the Control Panel, in Display, I went into Effects and ticked "Display icons using all available colors". The software I used must have unticked this item "behind my back".
