Windows 7: Odd hover background in recent programs in Start Menu

Odd hover background in recent programs in Start Menu

As you can see in the attachment, whenever I hover over any recent program in the Start Menu that doesn't have an arrow, the background image appears with 2 different colors. I was tinkering with aero.msstyles, but I don't know how to fix this, and I'd really prefer not to start customizing over again. I believe the image #s (w/ ResHack) dealing with recent programs in the Start Menu are 795-802, but I think there may be another image that is causing the weird background image.

I've uploaded the aero.msstyles file here: http://www.**************/?oj645dh4n0oiqpo (mediafire)

The #s are the same as the default unchanged aero.msstyles
I'd greatly appreciate any help with this theme.

I replaced image #795 with the default image and it was gone.
Your image is 6x296 the default is 7x296 try editing it again.

Adding another pixel fixed the problem! Thank you very much. I guess 1 pixel really can make a difference.

You're welcome

In most images you can change sizes but in this case you can not.
