How do I change font color inside e.g. properties box? (img attached)

I've uploaded attachment.
Can't change black text into white.
I've tried every option under "Advanced appearance settings" but it is still black.
And also, I've checked out this link -> How to Change the Window Color and Appearance in Windows 7

Is this a third party custom theme? If so post a link to it and I will look at it and let you know.

It's Zune theme. I used Windows Theme Installer v 1.1, UniversalThemePatcher-x64 and StartOrbz Studio 3.1a (ORB Changer). HowTo and all of the links are on this youtube link:

Thank you in advance!

I looked at that youtube page and follow the link to this page Zune QuickPlay for Win7 by ~giannisgx89 on deviantART is this the theme you installed? If so you have something else going on, here is what I get from that same property window.

Yeah, that's the one.
I did that, but font color is the same even with another (default) theme. Take a look:

I see you get a transparent border on your property window and mine is solid, have you made any changes to that theme?

In "Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance" I enabled transparency, maybe changed Color intensity a little and that's all.

I can do the "theme installation" again from the beginning, but I'm not sure if that's gonna help.

edit: And is there some easy way to bring all to default state? Is changing to theme I previously used a way to do it?

I would switch to the default Aero theme and then log off and then log on(you need to do this or you cannot delete the theme folder) and go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and delete the Zune Quickplay theme folder and the Zune Quickplay.theme file and re-downloaded and install the theme folder and the .theme file again.
