Hi Jerry--

Once I selected the Aero theme, then I restarted PC; then I copied this new file over the old file,
Still get the glow behind the title as in previous screen cap.... It creates a new theme each time, right?

It's not an iconpack I edited all the icons in the imageres.dll would you like a copy you will need to take ownership and give yourself permission and rename the old .dll and putting the custom .dll in is place.

Sure, it is ION Setup, a software that ships with new meters from Schneider Electric.
See the screen cap I attach below to see the glow.
