You would need a custom theme like this Dark7 Ultimate Theme for Windows 7 x64 & x86 Final!! and you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.

he installed a third party theme that changed the background once installed, bongo im sure can tell you how to change the background , but i can only direct you to a theme
mr grim makes really nice dark themes. find some here
Virtual Customs

edit, you beat me again jerry, well done.
i would go with jerrys link for now, as you need to sign up at virtual customs and have at least 10 approved posts before you can download a theme... but well worth it

Well the thing is ive pretty much customized my entire computer completely, mouse, icons, start button, more and with these themes they customize everything that i already did such as the icons. All i want is to be able to customize just windows explorer BG.
