Sharon, Are the Desktop and the ALL Programs menu the only areas where these shadows appear? Did you ever install any 3rd party themes which often cause problems similar to your problem? Try this:

Click Start>Run then copy & paste or type:

regsvr32 /i shell32

Click OK

Restart your computer,

Sharon, That's a strange problem I've never seen before. You could try a System Restore to the closest date just prior to when this problem started. Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Any updates or new programs you installed during that time period would have to be reinstalled again.
