If the above Helpe not works then check this for Result

1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
3. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Performance.
4. Click to clear the Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop check box, click Apply, and then click OK two times.
5. Close Control panel

Still having problems ?

Four things are required in order to maintain transparent icon backgrounds:

1)Control panel --> System Properties -->Advanced -->Performance Settings -->VisualEffects - check
"use drop shadows for icon labels".

2) Right-click on Desktop -->Arrange Icons by --> Lock Web items must be cleared(unchecked if checked).

3) If you have any web content on your desktop, transparency won't work.
To check for web content:Control panel --> Display Properties -->Desktop --> Customize Desktop -->Web - make sure all checkboxes are clear.
If you have any local address from the list select that and Delete it.

4) Wallpaper must be an image file, not html.

If you still have problem in desktop icons,please Disconnect your PC and handle it carefully and Deposit it Near by Koovam.
