Give yourself a black background?
Found this tidbit, no idea if it works, not going to test it incase I can't get the icon back. http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/2n5g3k...n-vista-and-xp
Ok, I tested it, it works. However, you have to switch the program Tweak UI with the program Ultimate Windows Tweaker because Tweak UI won't work in Windows 7 even if you run it in compatibility mode. Tutorial coming soon.
