I activated the guest account and log on with it... and voila, Guest account has no problem with text transparency....
Do I need to find some registry key differences between the desktop on these two accounts to find the problem?
Let me know if you guys have come up with any other ideas here... this new development is rather puzzling to me.

user preference mask what do you have as the number
should be something like 9e3e0580 but not exact as I run under classic modified. What number do you have?

wait... I found UserPreferenceMask 9e 3e 07 80
but as far as the Active Desktop folder, that one's totally empty. And actually the Active Desktop folder doesn't exist on the guest account. Which I think makes sense... though, I'm slightly disturbed that you can actually use regedit in the guest account.... seems like something they shouldn't let you play with....

I am looking at the registry for the current account with the messed up desktop.
I merely checked the other account as well.

If you like change to 9e 3e 05 80 this should give you classic desktop
go to the desk top and check. then go back to the registry hit f5 to refresh
then change back to 9e 3e 07 80
Has this fixed the problem?
And remember my 2 rules

Also I was wondering, Usetobe, if I should be concerned that I have no values under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies other than the (Default) REG_SZ with no value set... I assume that's merely a place holder, and really means nothing.

Thank you both for all your help. At least we tried.

If not download, update it and Scan -Fix all- Reboot
Download SSFix.exe from http://www.atribune....loads/SSFix.exe]Here[/URL]
Run it to extract the SSFix folder to your desktop.
Close all windows then open the SSFix folder on your desktop.
Double click on ss.bat (the program with the gear icon)
Allow it to run. When it is finished it will reboot your computer.
See if that makes a difference
