    When my WinXP starts after few seconds the desktop icons are refreshing (like reoladed) and My Computer, Recycle BIn, My Documents, My Network... icons are "double shadowed"(but just if i have a new menustart, with clasicall all is ok), the shadow is darker then in other icons (shortcuts to programs). When i put mouse pointer on any "double shadowed icon" it is changing to normal, it happens the same when i refresh desktop. Why ?!?
    I have noticed it happens only when I'm changing classical start menu to new start menu...

    here is the screenshot

    Make ya mind up dude.. either go XP stylie.. with shadows or classic without.. THERES NO MIX N MATCH!!

    XP Stylie is normal to have shadows, classic is not.

    Now if your gettin shadows when your set at classic, then you need to reload the XP or classic theme. I dont mean appearance properties.. I mean theme.

    Active Desktop can effect this too, so check thats either on or off depending on what u like.

    Right mouse button click and choose <Properties>.
    Go to <Appearance> and click on <Effects...>.
    See if that will help.
