    the 'unknown program' (icons that you may see if your computer cannot find a
    suitable program) to run files are just in front of my program icons. i can
    barely see them. now im limited to differenciating programs by their names on
    the desktop.
    this is very annoying. please help me??

  2. Have you tried sorting the icons on your desktops? Right click > View > Auto

    You post is VERY vague.
    Click on the top of the Window that opens with the listed different programs
    in it, and move it to one side!

    ok, it worked for about half a second. then this silly thumbnail pic covers
    the whole program icon again.(same as before). hope this time my explanation
    was better, sorry.
