Windows 7: DreamScene/desktop icon text fix

DreamScene/desktop icon text fix

Make sure you ran the "Windows7-DreamScene.exe" fix before proceeding.

1) Set Folder Options to Show hidden files, folders...

2) Set *.mpg or *.wmv as Desktop Background.

3) Right-click desktop > Personalize > Desktop Wallpaper.

4) Select the hidden *.jpg.

5) Set *.mpg or *.wmv as Desktop Background again.

Works until reboot. Maybe someone can create a file to run at startup for a more permanent fix. I don't think it would be to difficult but it's beyond my capability.

Go to System properties in computer properties and then the Advanced tab.
In the performance click settings.
Here in the bottom part you get that option.
