    The background behind my desktop icons is now a darkgray as when before it was transparent.
    What happened was my whole screen display reverted to windows classic (i think) i managed to get everything else back to the way it was apart from the desktop icons.
    Could anyone give me apointer in the right direction?

    Thanks.
