Hi,
I use XP SP1 with themes switched on. My icons have shadow under their name.
The shadow apeared during recovery after cleaning of a virus and spyware. It
is not terryble, but I do not like it. How do I get rid of this shadow? The
font is standard Tahoma, no bold, no italic,...I have tried to switch to
Windows classic desktop and it works, but the shadow under the icon name is
still there.

Thanks in advance...

Find and press the WinKey (it's down near the ctrl and alt buttons normally
and looks like the Windows logo usually) and press that and press pause
break at the same time. Click on the advanced tab. Under performance click
settings. Scroll down and disable drop shadows for icon labels on the
desktop.
