Making transparent desktop icon for text.

Not sure why, but suddenly i found my desktop icon changed from transparent to black. Tried with several methods from internet forums, but nothing worked. Finally the below solution worked for me. I just coppiced from a forum to here at my blog.

Step1: Right click My Computer and choose Properties. Go to Advanced Tab and click
on Settings button under Performance frame and deselect the Use drop shadows for
icon labels on the desktop checkbox and then click OK two times.

Step 2: Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc

Step 3: Go to User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components
-> Windows Explorer. Double click on Turn on Classic Shell and select Enabled option.
Click Apply and OK. Close the Policy Editor.

Step 4: Follow the Step 1 but select the checkbox and click OK.

Step 5: Now go to Desktop to enjoy the Drop-Shadow effect.

Thats it :-)
