Making text label background on desktop icons transparent

Can anyone tell me how to do this? I need the test label backgrounds to be transparent and the text to be black. I'm sure this is possible, I just can't figure out how to do it. Any help will be appreciated, and thanks in advance.

If you're using windows xp:

Control Panel->System->Advanced Tab->Performance Settings->Make sure "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the Desktop" is checked.

Also, right click on the desktop...Arrange Icons By...

and make sure that there is no check by "Lock items on Desktop"
wow u made it sound so impossible, he comes and makes it sound so easy lol

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
