a week or so ago after turning on my laptop the icons of internet programs had lost their shadows (shadows are inverted, white instead of black) , this had happened once before but went away after a few days, but this time its not going away, so what is causing this and what can i do to fix it.

OS: Windows vista home premium
acer aspire 5101(6 months old)
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 256 MB

If you hold down the <Ctrl> key and roll your mouse wheel up or down on the desktop, does that fix it any? Otherwise check the settings in right-click Computer > "Advanced System Settings" > Performance "Settings" button and near the bottom is the option "Use drop shadows for icons on the desktop".

all of the boxes in the performance settings are ticked, and still the same problem, i even tried going from best performance settings back to windows settings and nothing changed apart from when it was in the best performance settings the problem went away.

Are you running TweakUI?

If not, it could help a lot.
