background color behing folders

  1. Hey
    Do you know how to fix this:

    I have looked in Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Performance and made sure that the option to NOT do this was checked.

    Also, do you know why the wallpaper looks really bad? Its in 1280x1024 and Im running my computer in 1024x768 so it shouldnt look like that.

    Control Panel, Display, Desktop.
    Change the background color right here..
    (this is on XP by the way)
  3. i know that, but if i do that i will have to change it each time i change wallpapers.

    theres an option to make it take the color of the wallpaper but something happaned and its not working anymore.

    any ideas?
