    all of the sudden my icons look choppy, and have white backgrounds for the text... what happened to my nice clear ones?!?!

    anybody have any reg hacks for me? im seriously disgusted by it!

    thanks

    Right click desktop > Arrange Icons By > Lock Web Icons to Desktop.

    Make sure this is UNchecked.
