I need ot draw directly onto the windows desktop, behind the desktop icons.

Simply setting the desktop wallpaper is far to so, how can I draw onto this space directly in

I know I can get the handle of the desktop from GetShellWindow, but I have no idea how to draw it behind the desktop icons.

I cant even get it to draw into this handle, even if it were to draw over the icons it would be a start!
