Windows 7: Dynamic background

Dynamic background

This is so easy in Windows XP and earlier...

I want a background that in the morning is bright and at night becomes dark and has a slow transition throughout the day. In Windows XP, I could accomplish this by writing an HTML file containing JavaScript to do this and set it as my background, but now that Active Desktop is gone, I can't. I don't care that its a security issue; I just want Active Desktop back so I can embed my own scripts into my desktop!
