Control Panel Gradients in StyleBuilder

Hey guys. I'm making a Media Center Royale theme in StyleBuilder but I've got some areas in Control Panel that are really HARD to read. Does anybody know where to find these gradients/images?

I've highlighted the bad part with a red border

The left side of that would be Buttons, Boxes & Controls > Scroll Bars & Trackers > TrackBar > BORDERCOLOR:COLOR change the color, the right site is in the perfcentercpl.dll and you would need to do some hex editing, I have changed this part before if you feel comfortable changing a system file let me know and I will tell you how to do it.
