right click your desktop, go to properties, then select apprearance. Click the advanced button, then select Icon from the drop down. Change the 32 to another value lower. I believe that is pixels, but not sure. That will make them smaller. Then you can change the font size assocated to that as well.
In the drop down, there is also the vertical and horizontal spacing, which you can change to make them closer as well.
Good luck

It could very will be the windows blinds...
There was a post about "windows blinds" like last week...
Advice: Never uninstall that thing - It took a while for us to figure out that "Windows Blinds" was the problem.
