Changing Mouse Selection Color- Win7 x64

Hi!
I have 2 computers of win7, in one of them the selection color of the mouse is lightblue with a blue border,
but in my second PC, the filling is transperant and the border is a grey broken line like in the image.
I'm not looking to change the selection color in the Yellow Arrow.
I'm looking to change the selection of the mouse like pointed in the Red Arrow .

I hope you understand my question,
Thanks!!

Welcome to SevenForums, orel.

OK, here's what you gotta do.
In Start Menu, search for "adjust the appearance and performance of Windows"
Open the option with that name.
In the Window that opens, find "Show translucent Selection Rectangle"
Check it and Click apply.
Post the results.

Hope it works. If you got a solution, post it and mark thread as solved.
