I'm sure you all are familiar with this, but I will attach some images to confirm we are talking about the same thing.

When the icon labels overlap, the transparency causes the label text to be obscured for both icons.

A busy desktop background that goes from light to dark further complicates matters because regardless of the text color choice (black or white), in certain areas of the desktop, the text color contrast will suffer.

I am looking for a way of returning to the Windows 98 style of solid icon label background blocks.
