My guess is they have drop shadows for icons turned on in the system, advanced 
performance settings.  Just a thought,... the same thing happened to me aftger 
turning off Active Desktop

  Hi,

   

  Sounds like the screen effects has changed. Go to the Display 
properties/Appearance/Effects screen and see whether the "Use the Following 
method to smooth edges of screen font" is set. If this is the problem you then 
need to find the policy that controls it.

  I changed a user GPO to disable the Active Desktop. After the change I have 
several users complaining that their desktop icons are blurry and look 
different. All users are using a .BMP as the background, should this have had 
any effect on the look of the icons. If it does how can it be fixed without 
enabling Active Desktop.

  Thx
