    running WinXP and the only way I've found to "Wipe" clean my desktop is to
    log off and log back on. It doesn't help to switch users and switch back.
    Any thoughts?

    Mine does the same in Windows ME, if you mean the icon (such as Outlook
    Express) stays highlighted.
    I left click the mouse, not on the icon itself, and the highlight goes, but
    a line stays around the icon. It doesn't seem to be doing any harm.

    Click on a blank area of the desktop, then press the F5 key (refresh). That
    may work. You might need to update your video drivers. Or, if Windows Update
    or something like that did that for you, you may need to rollback the
    drivers to the previous version.
