    AuRe!Thanks.
    But I mean if there is a software that I can use to show the Visual effect in win98.
    If no,how I can convert 32 bit icons to 16/24bit without the black shadow which is terrible in win98. :)

    Hmm I'm not sure you can, converting a 32bit icon to 16bit or such defeats the whole purpose of 32bit, it strips down the colors and removes the 8 bit of alpha blending/transparency (that black shadow you see) So if your on 98 and want 32bit icons I believe your only option would be to upgrade. sorry man.
