    hey

    i turned the computer on today to find that some registry files had been damaged, which led to the computer losing a few settings.

    i got everything sorted, apart from the transparacy on the desktop items. any ideas how i get it back? they are coloured to the 'desktop colour' in display properties.

    any help is welcome

    cheers

    Your best bet is to go to system properties, then under advanced then performance. The option should be there to show shadows under menus.

    OR. Right click desktop-properties-apperance-effects-(check) show shows under menus.

    Hope this helps.

    went into system properties, then under advanced then performance, and clicked all of them.
