so far, i've only seen it in the driver. but it may show up again in other programs in the future. for example, icofx is a program that have windows that don't use aero.

i was hoping it was an easy fix but if it's hard to find then i'll wait until it shows up more.

If it shows up just note what program it is and let me know.

hey bongo, i'm still using this skin and it's great. but can you fix these blue windows icons and desaturate them to make them gray? these appear in xnview [browser mode] when the program isn't focused.

also, on the taskbar, there is slight hint of the reflection effect. can you remove them?

[but don't change the "show desktop" button]

Which progressive bar are you talking about the one for the hard drive or the one for like the copy window?

i'm talking about the green progress bar. the one that's used for copy window, installations, transfers, etc.

----

the reflection, i have enhanced it in photoshop so you can see more clearly. can you remove it by filling the area with a pure black?

[note: this issue is hard to see unless you use a black wallpaper.]

I can try to change the color of green progress bar they can be pretty tricky when it comes to the highlight when it moves across during activity, what color would you like.

Sometimes you get a bleedthrough of the previous theme(have you tried a reboot) on the taskbar, I tested it and did not get any reflections, but I can make the taskbar pure black, do you use the taskbar just on the bottom or all four positions each position has its own set of images.
