To get rid of the text box below the icon on your desktop wallpaper in XP you need to make one setting change. Click on the start button. Go to Setting\Control Panel\System. Click on the Advance tab. Click on the Settings button under performance. Click on the the Visual Performance Tab and select custom. Then check "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop." Then click OK twice and close the control panel and the text boxes are gone. Not tried it myself!.
