I'm sorry to hear about your issue. We will try to help you resolve this as soon as possible.
Please understand we are all volunteers and we are not here all the time. Sometimes it may be a extended amount of time to get back to you. If it has been more then 3 days please shoot me a PM and I will try to get back to you quickly then.
I'm not really familiar with Vista but I do remember something about clearview and it may be enable on your icons.
Also Right Click on your desktop
Go to Properties
Then to Desktop
There should be a Dropdown menu for what you want to change.
Open it and click on Icons
Check to make sure there is no Color Background assigned to them.
If so then change it to none.
Does this help at all?

Anything downloaded from the internet?
