never encountered this before...

Fatman.

as u can see the icons look flat not as they should be.

if you look CLOSELY and if u have the icons i do..u will notice the difference.

Well you should go back to start menu control panel, then go to display, then when display pops up click on the "desktop tab", at the bottom click "customize desktop" when that pops up click "restore" defaults and that should work

its strange realy..it has something to do with macromedia fireworks..basiclly all my images were opening in fireworks which took ages to load..so i changed the image properties to image and fax viewer and then next time i turned my computer on..the icons changed. i think thats how it happened.
