You're welcome
I know nothing about hex editing, I use Ave's Windows7 Style Builder to create or edit themes.

OK try 689 for Active and 688 for Inactive or in WSB Toolbars, Headers and Rebar > Rebar > NavBar > Basic > Max > Active > Background and Toolbars, Headers and Rebar > Rebar > NavBar > Basic > Max > Inactive > Background
