    If all the icons are selected, hit the 'start' button, and that should unselect them. Did you select all the icons by hitting the CTRL + A buttons by mistake?

You must have selected a different windows theme. go to control panel, display (in xp) or personalize (in vista), and select a default theme, and the grey background should disappear.

How do i dletet my stuf on google


Hi
I presume you are referring to emails, in which case login to your GMail account, go to the folder of the emails you wish to delete and highlight them using the little box to the left on the title line. Once highlighted you will find extra tool icons at the top. Click on the Delete icon - see picture below

and those emails that are highlighted will be deleted.
Cheers

My desktop icons are highlighted in colors and wen i put a wallpaper the color comes on top of it how to remove it ?


If you want to hide your icons, right click on your desktop(your screen). A window will appear and put your pointer on view. Another window will open and at the bottom you will see "show desktop icons " with a check mark. Click on this and your icons will be hidden. To get them back do it again.

Start up and desktop icons missing


Hi,

This could happen due to various reasons like :
1. Any recent update done.
2) Virus infected
3) Windows missing/corrupted files.

There are several steps to resolve the issue.

Try one after another and check if that fixes the issue.

Step 1

Try this Fix
Click on the Download link and install the Fix No. 195 ( Restore Desktop Icons and Taskbar )
Download Link

Step 2

Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to bring Task Manager.
Click on New Task and type appwiz.cpl and click OK
This will re-run add/remove programs.
Remove/Uninstall all new program you installed before having this problem, Also remove the Windows XP Hotfix
Restart your PC.
The access to the taskbar , icons will all come back and Install a new Antivirus.

Step 3
If None of the above steps work, try a System Restore to previous date

Click START - All Programs - ACCSESSORIES - System Tool - System Restore
Choose the date before the system started giving trouble. ( The Date will be in bold ( highlighted ) which indicates the system can be restored to that date with all the settings on that date )

*Note : Doing system restore will uninstall any software/program you have installed from the date you choose the system restore till current date, However it will not delete any files created )

Hope this is helpful.
