    Howard - google for 'transparent42' - it's a tiny app which will set your desktop colour to transparent, getting rid of those nasty boxes around the text under your icons

    Anyway, I can't upload at the mo, my ftp's playing up.

    Old desktops:
    note - pics will remain blank until I can get my firewall/ftp client cooperating :-\

    @ Dr X...Thanks a million, I've been wanting to get rid of those boxes without the awful shadows XP gives you for ages!

    @ Praetorian... Here ye go

    Edit: DrX that program doesn't work...Any other way of ridding them? Or changing the colour of the text when the transparent icons are enabled in XP?
