AveFolderBG - Change Explorer Background

Just found this and thought i would share it :)
This tool allows you to change the background of your explorer folders to an custom image

Artists comments:
Updated AveFolderBG to work with Windows 7. Credit still goes to original author.

Still integrates into the Windows Shell using the Right-Click\ Customize this Folder menu option

Right-Click the Install.bat and Choose Run as Administrator to install extension
May have to Restart Explorer to for initial changes to take effect

Edit: Forgot to add, this also reenables the Auto Arrange Function. If you have your folders set to Icon View , the Auto Arrange option will not be grayed out

Looking for a way to have a solid Background Color instead of Images. Theres no way to use colors so I put together a pack of 83 - 1x1pixel solid color images that can be used to add a Solid Color to your folders background. Download the pack here 83 1x1 px Jpg's 4 FolderBG's by ~LeeWhittington on deviantART

On how to use it, see this Folder Background - Change
