Okay... I've seen this done lots of times and figure out how to do it myself (using active desktop, http://ad.rb-338.com/) but when using active desktop it makes the transparency for my icons mess up. So, what I'd liek to do is have the boxes (as background for coolmon) on my desktop without having to run active desktop and let that manifest my computer. Any ways to do this? I'm new to the whole modding stuff but I'm learning. Anyway, here is what I want to do (I know this pic is using active desktop, I just want the boxes without the whole active desktop program thinge) http://site.vps.org.au/nooga/misc/images/mydesktop2.jpg Any ideas? is it possible?
