Hi all,

I had to uninstall my alienware theme as it uses Windowbinds which conflicts with GTA ; San Andreas. Anyway I uninstalled Alienguise and then tried the Nvidia desktop theme from www.nvidia.com but thats made all my desktop items have blue boxes around them. I uninstalled the Nvidia theme but the boxes are still there. I'm up for a full reformat and reinstall of Windows as they are really annoying me now. If anyone knows how to get rid of them please post it here.

Example;

what iker0 said will change the text background but to kill the whole background - Right Click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > under "Performance" > Click Settings > Check "Custom" > Check "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop"

Thanks for the responces everyone, unfortunatley none of them worked. However I had an idea and created new Administrator user account and when you create new user accounts all settings revert to default. It was a pain in the jaxie as I had to uninstall Microsoft Office and re-create shortcuts for all my programs but it was quicker and easier than reformatting and reinstalling the OS.
