Default simple problem needs fixing

i really cant belive i cannot figure this out...so whenever i choose one of my regular windows backrounds it highlights my icons in the last color the back round was..i cant find where to change this....for example...when i have a all blue back round everything is blue...but when i change it to a picture stretched so it takes the whol screen the icon will stay blue around the text of the icon...i want the text to be there, but i do not want the color behind the text...thanks if anyone can figure this out....

This is how you change it:
Right click your desktop.
Select Properties.
Click the Desktop tab.
Change the Color Value (Found on right side).
Click Apply.

Got it!
Control Panel / System / Advanced / Performance Tab / Settings Button and put a checkmark in: Use Drop Shadows for Icon Labels on the Desktop

There ya go.
