Dear Ray,
I have another question. How do I get rid of the shadows behind the subtitles on my desktopicons? I have been updating drivers and programs and since these shadows appear. Right clicking on free space on the desktop and selecting properties-form-effects shows that the box 'shadows' is not ticked.
I have an Acer Aspire E300 desktop with a NIVIDIA 6200 SE TurboCache (TM). Can this be responsible?
Thank you in advance for your help in solving this problem. Greetings from Rob

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version


The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

I don't know about that.  Maybe someone else does.

Uncheck  "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop"
