I'm going on memory from some time ago now... but it seems to me that on XP that semi-transparent drag effect was related to the half-gray selection rectangle... IIRC turning one off killed the other... It might be worth a try but I ain't making no promises.

As Microsoft didn't write this feature into Windows 7 I would think that to get it done now is next to impossible. Perhaps Windows 8 will have it.But then when you think of it how often do you need to move the icons around the desktop?

The problem is not only on the desktop....It is too when copying files using the explorer for example....

Sorry but as I see it the only way you will be able to see the semi-trans icons is to choose another theme.

Or just use Aero and let you GPU get some use.
Classic btw runs on the CPU giving no performance boost.
