That is exactly what is was. I found this out on Friday while working with a 
user. Why does disabling active desktop change this setting on some desktops.

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
