Remove shadow Icon Boxes

How do I remove the desktop icon BOXES? I have already unchecked the: Use drop shadows for icon lables on desktop.
The shadow boxes are still there.

Is this what you are talking about (screenshot)

Are you still using the custom theme I made you?
If so I can change that for you.

No. I'm using the aero 7. I was afraid to messed up the other if I use it.

Do you want me to change the custom theme I made and call it something different than you will have separate one to try.

Well I didn't download the other from tutorial. I like the aero. The only thing I don't like is the box shadows.
