    I'm having a lot of trouble getting text to show up legibly on the Windows XP desktop. I can't choose the color I want for the font titles, and even worse, the text has an ugly dark halo around it whenever I assign a desktop background. Is there any way to change the color and to remove this halo without downloading software like Microangelo? Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

    1) The color you select for the Desktop is the color that will be behind the icon fonts.

    2) You can make the font background transparent by going to System / Properties / Advanced / Performance Settings Button and put a tick mark in "Use Drop Down Shadows for Icon Labels on Desktop" This way, if you use wallpaper or a background image, it will show through behind the icon titles.
