Desktop Icons with white background

Hello,

I have read through the discussion and I am unable to find a solution.
Hopefully someone here will be able to help me out.

I'm using a new laptop with Windows XP. Some of the file icons appear
correctly, and some appear incorrectly. The incorrect icons have a white
background with the regular icon much smaller and in the middle. The correct
application opens when clicked and I haven't experienced any problems because
of the different icons, but I would like to fix it. All MS Word icons appear
correctly, but Excel and Adobe icons do not. I have tried TweakUI and
refreshing the icons and it did not help. I have also tried chainging the
colour depth to force a refresh and that didn't help either.

Thanks for your help!
Justin

Re: Desktop Icons with white background

Thanks for the response. I should have mentioned that I am using Office 2003
with XP, though the problem is not only with Microsoft products. All my PDF
documents also appear this same way. It would be easier to upload an image
showing what is occuring.

Thanks,
Justin
