rantzid again.........
this is more like an icon or window "echo" not a graphic shadow
like the image is echoing again and again to the right across my desktop
thanks for any help on clearing this and making it sharper

a screen shot would not show the shadowing because those are artifacts. they are not supposed to be displayed. the only way he could show it to you is by video recording it with a webcam or something.

rantzid i still do not understand what you are trying to describe to us. but if the shadowing is too dark it could be from the "smooth edges of screen font" setting.

please right click on an empty spot on your desktop and select "properties"

the display properties box is shown. click the tab called "appearance" at the top. click the effects button.

uncheck "use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts"

let me know if this fixed your problem
