Had a search but didn't know to describe it.
Any one know how to get rid of this weird looking problem.

I went looking at every setting in Leopard and I can not find one that does that. Never seen that. Strange. Still looking around.

Looks like a GUI glitch. Do you get this in every app or just Mail and Finder?

And which version are you using? 10.5 or 10.5.1? If using 10.5.1, I would reinstall the 10.5.1 update but take big precautions with the install:

1 - go to Apple/Support/Downloads and spot the 10.5.1 updater for your Mac model

2 - download the installer

3 - unplug all unnecessary peripherals, only keep keyboard and mouse

4 - restart in Safe Boot mode by holding down the Shift key

5 - install the update - don't use the Mac while the installation is underway

6 - restart normally.

See if that didn't fix the problem. Report back.

Good luck!

So far just mail and finder.
Might be in ICal but I'm at work at the moment so I can't check.
I'm using 10.5.1 so I will try this over the weekend and report back!

Thanks for the responses.

Edit: In the picture if you look at the ICal icon see how the 13 is sitting into the red, never looked like that before.
