    right, so my recycle bin looks real weird on my desktop. i was wondering if i could somehow get rid of that white shadow behind the icon.

    or even better, is there a way to make it not say "recycle bin"?

    Thanx for that. Is it only happening with the recycle bin? Is my computer or networks doing it?

    So put the others up & see. It only takes a couple of clicks. Right click desktop/properties/desktop/customise.

    Are you using active desktop? Because that is what causes that on my PC.

    it went away for me when i unchecked "lock items to desktop". but i might have to try that active desktop thing. is there any benfit in having it active if you don't have like webpages as a background?
