I just turned on my PC a few minutes ago when I noticed that a few icons in the taskbar have a white background. How can you fix this?

To be honest even the big icons seem a bit weird. Sure you're not using a lower than 32-bit color mode? Also might be just a temporary glitch.

Ah, the big Icons are there coz it's 1024x768. I've restarted the pc a couple of times and it's still there. However, the other accounts are okay.

This might not be the problem at all, but in the past I've had problems with icons due to low available RAM at the time

For example, I'd see white backgrounds on icons, programs in the taskbar would have the wrong icon, desktop shortcuts would have the wrong icon... icons in programs like IE and AIM would not render and appear to be black boxes.

this only happened every once in awhile, and hasn't happened at all with my current computer. Though I use vista and have 2GB ram and I try to use as little RAM as possible.

Check your ram usage, end processes that you don't need and you might even have to restart some processes. Over time, programs like firefox consume but don't recycle memory. Basically, little portions of memory that firefox doesn't return to the stack add up overtime and are essentially being wasted. The simple fix is to restart firefox.

Oh and if all else fails, reboot.

I'm guessing that - like me - he's noticed that the edges on the larger icons are rather jagged.

Are you guys assuming due to the taskbar that's Vista with it's higher res icon set? Looks like XP to me, specifically the Black Vista edition that's been floating around for a few years. That being the case, those desktop icons look normal for default XP.

Have you tried simply right clicking the icons in the taskbar, going into the properties and changing the icon? Perhaps that would restore it, or swapping it to a new icon and then back to the original.
