Not sure what the "fuzzy white halo" is about as your photo is too small to be able to see it clearly. However, we'll try to fix the white boxes and hopefully fix the fuzzy stuff at the same time.
Go to Start menu, right-click on MyComputer and choose Properties
In the System Properties window, click on the Advanced tab, then click on the Settings button in the Performance section.
In the Performance Options window, click on the Visual Effects tab, and select Let Windows choose what best for my computer, then click on Apply, then Ok. Click on OK to close out the System Properties window also.
See if that helps you.

Go to Start>Search. The Search window will open. In the "Search for files or folders named" box, type iconcache.db
In the "Look in" box, use the down arrow and select the "C" drive, the hit the Search now button.
The search will begin. On the right side of the Search window, you should see two search results pop up.
Now right-click on a blank area in the right window, and choose View, then Details. This will allow you to see where the files reside (under the heading In Folder)
Is one of the results residing under your user name?
If so, delete it and restart your machine. Only delete the result that includes your user name.
If you have any questions about how to do this, or theres any confusion, please ask before continuing.

The file you deleted was probably a file on your desktop. Web files on the desktop can sometimes cause Desktop settings to freeze even if you change the Advance settings of System Properties.
I was concerned that you might have something else going on, but I'm satisfied everything is OK.
You're good to go!
