yea I used to be able to get rid of the gray by clicking the desktop, but NOW, it turns into a lighter gray when clicking the desktop. The attached image is with the desktop clicked, not the icon.

what the icon for, If its something you dont really use alot than just delete it. Umm if you do need it, for Active Desktop, im sure you can have that Program Launch use a icon instead of text! Not sure how but i think its somewhere on this site!

Did you try this oprion in Tweak XP?

Make Desktop Icons Transparent
Make the text of the desktop icons transparent: did you ever want the desktop icon text to be transparent ? Use this option to make the background picture of your desktop shine through the text of your desktop icons. This feature will remain active after a restart of Windows until you uncheck this option. Attention: This feature will only work when 'Font smoothing' (see below) is disabled.

I could kick myself. I should have noticed that this has happened to you, since you changed themes.

Fix
Display Properties - Appearence - Advance: Select Desktop and then the color to match the wallpaper where the icon will be placed at on the desktop.

but NOW, it turns into a lighter gray when clicking the desktop
Fix
Same as above, but select Selected Items and set the color 1 to match the same as above.

Remember to do that for each time you switch themes. Each theme changes those settings to match the coloring of the theme.

For example: Selecting the Silver Luna theme, gives the immediate background a grey color. Selecting the Blue Luna theme makes it blue.

I tested this and the grey went away for me. Hopefully this resolve it.
