|William, You can't change the icon text color in Windows XP. You either have black or white. You need a third party program like the one at the link below which costs $19.95 at the present time..|
Here's another program you can check out. It appears to be Free unless you wish to donate.
If you choose to use any of these programs make sure that you write down any changes you make with them. Then if you ever decide to uninstall them you change the settings back to the Windows XP defaults or you may run into problems later.
