Help with vista style builder !

Hello Guys

I recently purchased Vista style builder and i want to create or edit themes with it. I don't know so much about the program so i decided to edit a theme from deviantart. The theme is really cool and i like it so much but i have a problem with it. (Look in the picture)
I want to change the color of the line, to the normal windows 7 colour but i don't know how ??

Is there anyone who can help me ?? Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

That would be at Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Normal > TransparentBar > <2> you will need to edit the borders of that image.

Make sure you are not using the theme you are trying to edit switch to a different theme then log off and log on then you can edit it.
To change it to default Open the default aero.msstyles go to Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Progress Bars > Normal > TransparentBar > <2> and use the Export button save it to your desktop then open up the custom theme and Import the image

User picture go to Start Menu > Panels > Basic > UserPane and check USERPICTURE:BOOL
