I have dual displays and I was wondering if I can put to different wallpapers on the two moniters. To do that I had to go to Display Prop., Desktop, Custom, Web and chose a different pic to display on second monitor. Upon doing so it put shadows back under the icons witch I don't want. Is there a way to get around this or is it because it is in web desktop format?

It is one single video card but two displays. And I picked extend my windows destop to the second monitor.

Can anyone solve it????

Thanks

Does this fix the problem?

You may also try to deactivate cleartype in display properties\appearance\effects, and see if that clears it up.

If you are really ambitious you can try modding the icons in photoshop ( and other graphics programs).

That is an unfortunate side effect of having an Active Desktop showing Web content. No way around it that I've ever seen.

theres a program called display fusion that works really well for dual monitors. As for fixing the problem first, I had to go into the registry and manually turn off active desktop.
