Since the computer thread is closed I'm forced to ask here...
If anyone has used Windows operating systems they'd be familiar with the difference in icons in XP and previous versions, while the XP has no colouring around the wordings below an icon the earlier ones do and this is seen as the box that encloses the letters, so recently my computer has started putting this box around the letters after it came back from some repairs. This is quite unpleasant and visually displeasing, so fellow Pit nerds and computer geniuses how can I get rid of this 'box', I've fiddled around with various settings to no avail and I'd like to know how to get rid of this box.

Thanks in advance

I think I know what you mean, try this:

Start - Control Panel - System - Advanced Tab - Performance Settings - Tick "Use drop shadows for icons on the desktop" - Click Apply

Should do the trick

This is caused by the far background color. You can change it in the display option menu, or the menu in the post above.

2 - Stand in line for hours.

3 - Pay $100

4 - Install new OS.

5 - Discover new OS won't run properly without more RAM and disk space than you have.

6 - Buy more RAM and a larger Hard Drive.

7 - Enjoy all the latest bugs.

8 - Scream: "Ram it up my ass again, Bill Gates!"

9 - ?????????
