I think what it is, (not sure) is that Active desktop disables the feature, so 
depending on what was set before AD changed it should be what it reverts back 
to.  It also could be the backgound.  On a dark or colored background it is not 
very noticable, but on a light or white background it is very noticable.  That 
is because the fonts are white with a shadow.

  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
