Default Loss of anti-aliasing on icons in Vista?

I've googled the problem and asked around but to no avail.

Basically, some (only some, not all) of my icons have lost their anti-aliasing. So instead of having a smooth edge, these icons all look jagged and basically ugly now.

I don't remember when this happened... maybe about 2 weeks ago? I've only noticed it recently. I don't know what I've done wrong to make them look this way and I've checked out my graphics card configuration center or whatever, but there's no fix I can find for this. I like to play Pangya full screen but with a game resolution of 640x480, and every time I go full screen, it changes my laptop's resolution... but this used to be fine in the past, and it's fine on my PC without messing up my icons, so I don't even know if that contributed to anything.

Restarted so many gd times and the problem is still there. I use Windows Vista.

This is what some of my icons look like:



... Help please?

If it only affects the desktop then leave it be

It affects those few icons in my quick launch too like my SS shows, and apparently if I change my icon size to "medium", they'd look fine, but... I don't want to just leave them like that, they look so ugly. o_O Don't understand why this is happening at all.

You tried best appearance as well?

Try Right click on desktop -> Personalize -> Select any theme to let it reapply see if it helps.

That didn't work either...


Edit: I have anti-aliasing back on my iTunes and Skype icons now (compare to how it was in my original SS) - my ONLY problem now is still with those "small" folder icons and the empty recycle bin on my desktop. It's weird 'cause the recycle bin looks fine when it's "full" but not when it's "empty". :x And yeah, this seems to only be a problem on my desktop... I know it's not a big deal but I really want them to look nicer. ):

Try rebooting and pressing F8
Then boot into VGA mode and reinstall the drivers.

I think it's because of Pangya. You might have set the resolution to 640x480x16 and somehow it didn't change back to 32 when you closed the game. I'm not sure how to change it on Vista, it might be something like... right click on the desktop > Personalization > Display Settings -> Advanced Settings > Monitor tab


If I'm right, just set Colours to 32 bits. And next time use 640x480x32 on Pangya
