Windows 7: Can't change folder background color

Can't change folder background color

Hello!
So I have a problem but I never cared enough about it to look into it.
Today I couldn't stand it anymore so I tried to find a solution for it..

So, the problem is..

I'm using a visual theme for windows.
And this visual theme changes the background color of the folders.
I do like the stuff that it changes but I want the background color of the folders to be white.
Here is what it changes it into.



It's like this for every single folder and library in my PC.

I checked another thread here on the forum and tried to change the values on window here

and on the Desktop > Colors but as it shows on the screenshot only the left side of the window changes to white (255 255 255). While the left side is the same as the folders. I think the color is 64 128 128.

Also tried to change it from the Personalize > Window Color > Advanced Appearance Settings > Window.
Same thing happens.

I just want the background color of all my folders to be white.
Someone can please help?

Here you go, download and extract the zip folder below to your desktop, switch to the default Aero theme then log off and then log back on, go to C/Windows/Resources/Themes and open up the Miku Love is War by andrea_37 theme folder and rename the Miku Love is War by andrea_37.msstyles to Miku Love is War by andrea_37.bak.msstyles then put in the one from the zip folder.
