Hi,
I have a wallpaper but the letters of the icons are having a black
background instead of that of the wallpaper. Also the resolution of my screne
has changed and it isn't smooth anymore. It isn't serious, just very
annoying. Please HELP me!

Right click on your desktop and select properties, click on appearance, then
click on advanced. whatever you click in the box will show you a color option
box. Then click effects and you can remove the shadowing.

Also if you have a flat panel you can try this. go to display properties by
right clicking on desktop from there choose appearance, from there go to
effects and then choose : Use the following method to smooth edged on screen
fonts and pick clear type . Your probably on standard right now if you
started out with a normal monitor instead of flat. But, yeah if you bought a
notebook then yours should already be on clear type. If not choose it instead
of the standard setting and see the difference. Like night and day. Good
Luck!
