    Do you remember if you installed a program called Afloat?

    Those icons tell me you installed some kind of haxie.

    Look in system preferences for it.

    :eek: I think that is REALLY cool!


    I would suggest looking in system preferences, but if it was a terminal command... Hmm well this will sound stupid but do you remember what commands you put into terminal? Tracing your footsteps?


    Also do you use a external backup hard drive?

    Where did you get the special set of icons ? That's a good place to start looking.

    well post a screenshot of your apps and your system preferences ...to see if anyone can determine by that if there was a specific app that caused it.

    Yeah, try to do this. I'm almost certain this is an app of some sort.

    What was the outcome!??

    I'm now having exactly the same problem as megacranium and found this forum thread from google.

    I have tried all sorts to repair this! There are no options on system preferences for this, and I haven't installed any new programs.

    It seems its a rare problem, megacranium did you get an answer or manage to fix it?

    ALL I WANT TO DO IS PUT IT BACK TO NORMAL!

    Anybody else any ideas?? Please!

    Well if it was a terminal command that did it and you don't remember what it was type this in your terminal:

    history | less

    then just use the space bar to scroll through your history of commands.

    Oh and when you figure it out, let us know...I think it looks cool.
