Your best bet is to check through any relevant WSF tutorials. Google is always a good place to search as well.

There was some info on using resource hacker to change explorer background on this thread:

http://www.sevenforums.com/customiza...nd-change.html

but it may one have been about the background color. I couldn't get it to work in any case, but it may have some interesting information.

Works a treat

Have a look here, tried a few but this one was the only one that worked trouble free, it's very easy.

Small tip, set your bacground images to 1920 x 1080 otherwise it creates a tiled effect.
