Taskbar - stronger (or different) color of task we're using right now

Hi. In XP all tasks on taskbar have blue background and this one which we exactly use is orange. It's very easy to notice which one task is active. How to do the same with Windows 7? All tasks (even this one we are using right now) have similar color.

You need the taskbar buttons edited.
If you are using the default aero theme I can change that for you, using Windows Style Builder and post it here in a zip folder.

This will be a custom theme and you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.

It's not a bother, it would not take to long to change the button. I could do it a Monday.
