Changing the Window & Taskbar Color without aero??

hey, i put windows 7 on this older pc i have. its 32 bit ultimate. the pc has a p4 2.4ghz 512ram and a 128mb radeon 9200 which is dx8 so no aero. since this is my older and secondary pc im not concerned with aero on this cuz i know it will hinder performace. all i want to do is change the window and taskbar default color from the default sky blue. i know it can be changed with using high contrast theme but then that changes everything else. is there anyway with out aero just to change the color?

help will be appreciated thanks

Sadly to say, there is no way (yet, hopefully) to change the taskbar color without Aero. I've tried numerous times, and each time it has failed.

If you can't change the Taskbar color, would changing the Taskbar font's color, style and size help you a little?
