Alright, well I have a Media Center PC, and the icons always on my desktop only showed the words. This is kind of hard to explain, but now there is a blue box in which the words are in. For Example, My Computer. Before that is all you would see under the little icon; now you see a blue box with white words inside of it saying My Computer. I messed around with all the view properties with no luck.
This whole thing happened to me today after I got some spyware. I have gotten rid of it, but still cannot get my desktop icons the way they were before.
Well, I finally got rid of all the spyware off my computer... and it went back to normal.. I really recommend Uniblue SpyEraser and it's whole product suite. It's amazing how much faster you're computer runs after using the registry booster, speedupmypc, and spyeraser.
