Windows 7: Set Image as Folder Background (win7)

Set Image as Folder Background (win7)

So I have a folder with quite a few solid white .PNG images that can't be seen against the default white background. So far I have been either..

1- Highlight (select all)...but then you lose the multi-select functionality.

2 - Move to desktop...then move back (very irritating)..

A long time ago...I downloaded a program that changed the folder background to a select image in windows XP.

I tried doing the same for Windows 7...but it was extremely buggy. Folder would crash, etc. These are important folders and I need them to work.

Has there been any improvements for this in the past 3 years?

Well I set it to a very light light solid grey so that I can see the white Icons.
