      Does Aero Peek work for you?
      If not, then you should simply apply this fix.

      I don’t know if it’s just me, but my desktop icons often lose drop shadow, and the selecting rectangle is of ugly dots and not alpha blended.

      I wrote a small app that does the following:


      HWND hwndProgman = FindWindowEx(NULL, NULL, TEXT("Progman"), NULL);
      if (hwndProgman)
      {
      HWND hwndShell = FindWindowEx(hwndProgman, NULL, TEXT("SHELLDLL_DefView"), NULL);
      if (hwndShell)
      {
      HWND hwndListView = FindWindowEx(hwndShell, NULL, TEXT("SysListView32"), NULL);
      if (hwndListView)
      {
      DWORD style = ListView_GetExtendedListViewStyle(hwndListView);
      style |= LVS_EX_DOUBLEBUFFER;
      style |= LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTBKGND;
      style |= LVS_EX_TRANSPARENTSHADOWTEXT;
      ListView_SetExtendedListViewStyle(hwndListView, style);
      }
      }
      }
