  1. I'm not sure what I did but today I noticed the icons on my task bar turned white, as well as my IE on my desktop. I'm not a tech savey person and have no idea how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Reboot the system and press F8 safe mode without networking and login to your XP. Do you see white for for the icons?

    Yes I do. Now it's icons from the start menu. "Run.." "Search" "Help and Support" "Set program access and Defaults" have all turned white.
