Important alert: (current site time 7/2/2015 9:46:35 AM EDT)
Planet source code is coming back! Due to a technician error, planet source code files and database (along with backups) were lost. Originally, I thought the site would have to shut down. However, the database has been re-engineered and the source code from the planet source code CD, is in the process of being uploaded to the site. Please give me a few more days and things should be back to normal. For now, you can view text code, but not zip files or screenshots. Thanks so much for all your kind emails and support!

     Ever wanted to make the butt ugly block of colour behind desktop icon's text disappear through code? well, now you can! I searched the net hi and low for VB code to do this but to no avail, so I wrote this. To my knowledge it's the FIRST EVER VB code for this, so check it out. It's only been tested on Win 9x & Win ME. Take a peek at my site at http://www.em.f2s.com if you like this code. Hope you learn something =)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
