Desk Top appearance

Post by arlojanis »

I am running XP. I used a right click to create a short cut. A message box said syncing. Now all of my icons on desk top have a red box around the writing and there is a white area in the top left corner. How do I get the desk top back to normal?

That sounds like almost like Active Desktop in a way. I have not heard of this problem. Doing a little GoogleFu, I found this link: ... rner-squar

See if that helps.
