Changing the taskbars colour completely?

Hi, I'm new here
I'm currently using a modified for dual screen version of: Knife by *Mikeinel on deviantART as my wallpaper, because of that I want an completely or atleast mostly white taskbar, but Windows won't do that , this is my best result, which have a lot of blue in both ends, which just doesn't look good. (Don't mind the black border, my screens are different sizes )

This as white as I can get it, I don't think your going to get much better unless you get a modified theme.

That is pretty much what I have, although I have transparency enabled, it doesn't do a difference though... How would I go about it with a modified theme?

Have you tried Garbanzo's 'AeroPlain' found on DA.. It say's for dark theme's but the complete opposite should work too. Otherwise it means resource editing the '.msstyles' files for that certain theme.

I give up... I'm just using a red theme now, which looks much better, so everything's good, it's probably made that way so that you can easily read the clock etc
Thanks for the help anyway
