I think I have a solution to your problem. First step...
Go to Start > Right Click on My Computer > Select Properties > Click Advanced Tab > Click Settings in the Performance Box >> Under the Visual Effects Tab >> Make sure you have the box checked that says "use drop shadows for icon labels on desktop".
If it is checked, just cancel out. If you had to check it then click Apply > Ok etc. Close everything out selecting OK and/or Apply
If that doesn't solve the problem(which I have a feeling it may not)
Right click on any open area of your desktop screen > Move mouse over Arrange Icons By> IF "lock web items on desktop" has a check mark next to it > Click on "lock web items on desktop". Doing so will "DeSelect" that option if it did have a check mark next to it.
Between the two fixes, I think this should solve the problem.
Let me know how it goes.

i went ahead & unchecked first item
you unchecked the "use drop shadows" box. You want that Checked and the "Lock web items" Not Checked.
Is that the way it is right now? I was a little confused by your answer as to what you did or how it is set up right now.
Let me know.

this may not be an issue as i went into desktop display properties & i saw that you can change the color. i changed it from blue to white & the background for the text below each icon changed from blue to white.
my question to you: is the text below each of your desktop icons enclosed in a colored box?
if not, then i may still have a problem as i thought these changed when i tried to insert & paste an image into one of these messages. thanks

Well, I have no idea then. That is always how I have used to highlight or not highlight the icons text. I did some googling and every response to the same question you have is to do what I already recommended.
Maybe someone else will no, or maybe there is something more serious wrong. Sorry, I'm clueless.
Anyone have any other ideas?
