How to remove Blue Background Color in Desktop Icons

Some of the Windows XP users might have facing the trouble of having a blue background color in their desktop icons. As shown in the image.

By having this blue background color it looks ugly to see the desktop.
It can be sloved by following the below procedure.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on your desktop or in the Start menu
2. Select Properties --> Advanced --> and click Settings [under Performance section].
3. Then under Visual Effects --> choose Custom and just check "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop"
4. Click OK.....
That's all! The 'Ugly' blue background color will not be there

A very unfortunate & old trick which really not works 99% of time.
