Aero blue highlight

Is there a way to remove the blue highlight from Aero themes without switching themes? Whenever I go advanced on personalize and set my color on selected items. It doesn't change. Scrolbar slide is highlight blue. Minimize, restore is blue highight.

Are you trying to use a custom theme or a change from the Windows 7 default? If you are trying to use a custom one, it may sound like a pain in the tookis, but try "duplicating" that theme if the changes don't seem to stick... To do this, you'll need to create a seperate theme and name it something different, keeping all the settings you want... then you can switch in between and hopefully this will help the changes "stick" Hope this helps!

Highlight text
I am working in Microsoft Word and throughout different documents when I highlight text from time to time it will all get deselected and I have to reselect it again. Why is this going on and how can it be fixed? I use a wireless mouse and it uses a USB insert into my laptop. The brand is a Logitech.
