Problem screen captureThe attached file shows the top right of my screen with Internet Explorer open. I do not want to see the extremely blurry icons shown.  Just a solid color or an extension of whatever my maximized screen is showing. What setting am I missing?

You'll need to switch off Aero to get rid of that. The general layout if your desktop elements will be more classic, pre-Vista.
