There are a lot of things MS forgot to change or tweak in Windows 7 in terms of aesthetics.
1. The Registry Editor Icon.
This is a given. It hasn't been changed since Windows 95, and that's pathetic.
2. The Taskbar/Start Menu Icon.
Minor, but still, it's kind of weird that MS left it in. The icon is clearly brought over from Vista, so the image of the taskbar isn't of Windows 7's.
3. Computer/Monitor Icon.
Really minor, but it doesn't really "fit" with the rest of W7. Perhaps the icon could use a light grey + light blue color palette just like the rest of the icons?
4. "The Bar".
The bar that has the "File, Edit, View", etc on it. I find it just weird-looking. Perhaps it could simply be changed to a light blue, to match the rest of the menus?
5. The Screensaver Monitor Icon.
This has been annoying me since Vista. Why can't MS make an icon of a monitor that's relevant to today's standards? Fullscreen (Non-Widescreen) CRT monitors aren't popular anymore.
6. The Itty-Bitty "About" Icon.
MS also hasn't changed this one since the days of Windows 95.

Title bar - you'd prefer Office 2007's Ribbon?
So many customizations...so little time....
