Windows 7: Change colors of these 2 visual style items?

In Windows 7, is there a way to change the white glow around title bar text to make it black? I want to set the title bar to white text with black glow so that it blends in better with my dark theme.

Also, is there a way to change the blue tint of the menus and toolbars to make it match our main visual style color? I would prefer gray.

not so gray matter

Not sure about the first question... but the second one can be adjusted by custom themes.

For example:

Name:  notepad.png
Views: 73
Size:  19.0 KB

You may be able to remove that through the advanced color settings in Window Color. It's probably called Menu or Menu bar.
