desktop icons

hi
new here to the forum. looking for some info.
i have windows 7 home 64 bit.
i was using simply transparent on here which is awesome. but now i guess ive had an
update and it wont work anymore.
when i go to use it, it says its avail in win 7 now and i dont know where or how.
simply transparent is a utility by jonathan grimes that by clicking of the mouse it will
hide all the folders and etc on my desktop and show with a click of the mouse.
i want to be able to hide and show desktop with click of mouse.
thanks for any help.

Have you tried reinstalling it? Have you tried uninstalling the update and seeing if it works? Do you have a restore point to a time it worked?

It says, "for Windows 98-2k (and maybe XP) "
