Windows 7: Title bar glow

Thank you very much, sir. This one really works! One thing though is there seems to be no change in appearance between an active and an inactive window. But that's no biggie, I can live with that. You did an awesome job and got rid of my problem.

Bongo, or anyone else please, I'm sorry to bother you, I've noticed it's mentioned that people can use Ave's Windows7 Style Builder, however I see it comes with a price and as a student, it's a little bit to high for me at the moment.
I was wondering if it is at all possible for you to (please, if you may have time or find time) create a very basic theme for me. I just would like to remove the titlebar font glow as the poster of this topic has asked about, and to remove the glossy/glass look from the squares around icons in the taskbar, so it looks flat. Oh, and I almost forgot (not included in the screenshot), in the corner of windows where the minimize and maximize, and [x] are to remove the gloss/glass overlay, if at all possible.
I have included a screen shot of what I am trying to change on my desktop.

I wish someone would make this changes to a basic Aero theme, like previous poster asked.

Many people are forced to use Aero theme only because it will prevent tearing in video playback and this would make it much more bearable.
