Welcome to the Seven Forums

Give me a hour or so and I can give you the image #s in the aero.msstyles.

top 671

middle 891

bottom 903

I would recommend that you start a new custom theme from scratch so you do not corrupt the original look at Post #38 Here it will show you how.
It makes it a custom theme so you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes

This may help Theme - Customize Custom Themes

903 should be right.

Zip up the .msstyles and post it here.

One more thing, some applications show blue menu bar background, like regedit.exe, Can I change it inside .msstyle too?
