Strange problem with visual styles

I have tried a few visual styles and for some reason the magnifying glass icon in the search toolbar never changes it's style. Look at the pic. Top is how mine looks, bottom is what it should look like:



I changed explorer.exe and explorerframe.dll just like i should, everything else gets skinned except for that little icon.

It's like that with every visual style i try.

Anyone know what could cause this?

Best Visual Styles/Themes?
What are some of the greatest W7 themes/visual styles that completely change the way the OS looks? I tried a few, but they were too lame. All of them were dark and shiny, and the transparency effects didn't work for many, if not, ANY of them. Is there a good theme that offers a Matte Plastic...
