Permanent fix to this would be is to disable shadows.
Press start, type:
adjust the appearance and performance of windows
Uncheck box Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop and click apply

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SE

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Continous fix: Dreamscene restarts while booting. Text is still transparent
Script editing using readme file: No difference
Standard fix: No difference
X64 fix: No difference
Shadow hiding: Complete text removing.

There doesn't seem to be any way to get this working on x64, if you don't want to set desktop background due to every startup. Crap

Windows 7 Ultimate , 64 bit

I know this is old,... but this fixed it for me
(and none of the above worked , neither the youtube tutorials)

Right-click My Computer, go to Properties, then Advanced System Settings.
Under Performance, click Settings.

Check 'Animate controls and elements inside windows.'

Click Apply, then Ok.
