Welcome to the forum! Could you be more specific? Are you running Windows XP-VM? I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "icon border".

The border that appears around smaller icons when using a size larger than the default?

Not sure you can - XP cant scale desktop icons.

Any chance of a screenshot of the 'border'? Could save guessing what you are after exactly.

I am running windows xp sp3 32 bit. On windows 7 and vista when you mouse over an icon, a white/blue border appears around it.

That's not a function under XP. If you left click an icon, it will highlight but there has never been a mouse-over highlight in XP.
