Try this:

Right click My Computer
Properties
Advanced
Peformance tab
Settings button
Visual Effects tab
Scroll down the list to "Use Drop Shadows for Icon Labels on Desktop". Check this option.

Did that do it?

I do apologize - I neglected to read the link since you mentioned "resolution".

Look at this PC Mag article: http://www.pcmag.com...,1828916,00.asp. It gives three reasons why icons lose transparency.

Does this help?
