Highlight under desktop Icons

By urxtradark ·
someone was working on my PC then i realized that all Icons on the desktop have highlights under them. I tried to get rid of it, but when i used the properties dialogue box there is no option to make these highlights go, there is an option to just change their colors..any idea? i am running windows xp professional.

Go to System Properties and click on Advanced and Performance Settings. Make sure to check the box in the ?Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop?.

If this does not work, go to Display Properties and click on Customize Desktop and Web. Make sure to uncheck the box in the ?Lock desktop items?.
