I was saving a jpeg from a document to the desk top by copy/paste. When I pasted the jpeg to the desktop it changed all the icons on the desktop. The Icons now have a blue shadow around them and the describtion box under the each Icon is now filled in with blue. I have tried all the display setting, set up the display the same as a different computer. Any help to change these Icon back to just the Icon and the describtion box not filled in.

Hi!
Try this:
- Control Pannel » System » Advanced
- click in Defenitions under Performance
- now you have plenty of options that let you costumize the visual efects on your PC, including shadows and icon backgrounds
(my Windows is in portuguese so i cant be sure if this are the actual buttons in EN version)

If this don´t work out try this excellent program: WindowFX (http://www.stardock.com/products.asp)

Looking at it a second time....it probably won't help in this situation....
