Does ANYONE know how this customization was done? and how it can be un
I'm looking for information on how the following customization was done.
the below photo shows a window with customized trim paneling on the left side...
While I currently enjoy the nVidia influenced version of Windows 7... I absolutely loathe the styling.
Can ANYONE please tell me how these trim customizations were done so that I can undo them?
and the start menu (which is barely legible)
While I can appreciate the utilitarian aspects of this modified OS...
its decorators had obnoxious taste
Please someone help me understand how these trim customizations/mods were done.

Welcome to the Seven Forums
For the control panel that would be bitmaps #632 and #633 in the shell32.dll in both(because you have 64-bit) C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64 you will need to edit the bitmaps with a image editor.
Look at this tutorial from Step 7 Icons - Change Using Resource Hacker will show you how to use Resource Hacker chose to use shell32.dll and bitmap instead.
Hint: I would get copies of the shell32.dll and put them on your desktop and edit them from their do not get the .dlls mixed up put them in separate folders on your desktop.
To properly change a system file you need to take ownership give yourself permission and rename the old file and then copy in the new one look at Post #6 of this thread will tell you how to do it Basic Networking Information
For the start menu if you could post a link to the theme you are using I would be able to tell you what image # that is, it would be in the .msstyles in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\THEME NAME folder.
