For MONTHS i've had a plain black background. Boring right? Well heres why:

One day my lil brother decideds to go into my room when I'm not in it, and bang on my keyboard. Ever since then, the icons on my desktop show up black instead of blending in with any background I choose. Heres a couple pics to explain better.

how my desktop looks now:

how it looks if I try and use a background other than black: :yuckky:

What I think is wrong is the following.

(you have to make sure that hidden files and protected OS system files are visable)

Go to c:/WINNT and find the file ShellIconCache (it will be hidden). Delete that file and reboot your computer, all the icons should refresh and then you should see them normaly again.
