I'm working on an emachines 400i3 desktop. I just put XP Home on it.
Only problem is that under each desktop icon where the words are, the letters are shown in white, with the rectangular dark blue background all around the words. I don't want that background to be there. Just have the letters show up with the desktop background all around them.
I looked through Appearances and Themes and the associated desktop / image settings, and found nothing that would eliminate the background rectangles. All I seem to be able to do is change their color but not make them transparent.
How can I do this? My main XP Home system never had this problem.
Maybe it's something in the BIOS?
