how to hide desktop icon text??

im running 64-bit win7, i also have dreamscene enabled running reactor_1680 background.
it has a black border around it, around 4 inches from the edge of the screen.

now for the past month its been perfectly fine but something happened to it?

the way i had it setup was the desktop icon text was hidden and then when i single clicked on something it showed the icon text, now the text is back to white and i cant figure out how i did it. its annoying haveing white text on the screen.

how do i get rid of it? even if i could change the colour to black id be happy.

Hello cbrracer and welcome to Seven Forums.

Can you go back to a date/time prior to when the issue first began using System Restore?

Make sure you ran the "Windows7-DreamScene.exe" fix before proceeding. 1) Set Folder Options to Show hidden files, folders... 2) Set *.mpg or *.wmv as Desktop Background. 3) Right-click desktop > Personalize > Desktop Wallpaper. 4) Select the hidden *.jpg.
