    Have you at any time used a utility program for your icons? I don't think there is a Windows default that would produce squares exactly like that. I believe (no personal knowledge) tweakui can make icons that look similar. I am not familiar with some of your installed programs, but they do look like, some of them, could be "tweakers"?

    No. I would say definitely it is not a virus, Poker sites depend on their reputation for their custom. I would not imagine you are in any greater danger of a virus on such sites as any others.
    Can't help with the icons - sorry. I am 100% certain it is the icon tweaker that has caused it. There should be some way to reverse the problem in the tweaker.

    hey thanks for the reply....
    I already uninstalled ObjectDock then why is it still causing problems????I assume fences didnt cause this because it simply helps in rearranging the icons on the desktop whereas objectdock completely changed everything.
