Dark/High Contrast Settings

Hi everyone,
I've used WindowBlinds extensively in the past, but now with the color change options of Aero, I really don't have a need for it anymore. The problem is, however, that I can't get some things dark like before. For example, Start Menu, folder backgrounds, and the page in Word are all white and I'd like to make them high-contrast while keeping Aero. Does anyone know a way to do this? I've tried experimenting with the advanced appearance settings without result. On a side note, I've also been unable to change the logon screen, even with all the tools and suggestions I've found on this forum.
Thanks!

Locke23, Welcome to the forums, now, from what you describe, you want the general theme to be dark like the high contrast themes, but still have aero? Note: Or have it a solid color?

Thanks! Yeah, I want a way (if it's possible) to have a high-contrast aero theme. I just want to get rid of as many white backgrounds as possible.
Thanks for the reply!
