Windows 7: Clear font on desktop dilemna

Clear font on desktop dilemna

I have been faced with a bit of a dilemna. One one hand, I love to use Windows Dreamscene. On the other hand, however, I hate what it does to the fonts on my desktop icons.

See the picture.

I'm curious as to how I get those set so they're not clear like that.
I've tried going into CP>Personalize>Widows Color and Appearance>Advanced to set it to a regular color, but it disabled the ability to choose a color.
And so, I am curious if there is a registry fix for this or not.
Or a fix of any sort, for that matter. Anything would really help a lot, thank you. :)
