Windows 7: change taskbar thumbnail list mode border in WSB

change taskbar thumbnail list mode border in WSB

I have edited my aero.msstyles file to remove the borders on the taskbar thumbnail previews. I recently removed the taskbar thumbnails via the registry (changing the previews to list mode). The thing is that there is now a border that wasn't there before [see attached pic], and I don't know how to remove it in WSB or ResHack. Anybody know what image # it is or what I have to change in WSB to remove it?

Have you editing all the images under Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBandExtendedUI > Horizontal > Thumbnails & Controls and Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBandExtendedUI > Horizontal > BasicMode and Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBand > Aero > TaskBandExtendedUI > Vertical > Thumbnails & Controls (Vertical) > Background

I've tried editing both the background and border images under TaskBandExtendedUI for Aero (horizontal) and BasicMode. Do I also have to change the vertical image?

Sorry for the late reply, but like another problem I had with my theme, changing the images to transparent 1x1px images did the job. Thanks for the help.
