Help me disable the taskbar button color highlight "feature".


I have been looking all over the net and have not found a solution. I know that"feature" that matches the button icon is supposed to help, but this is quiet aggravating. my question is, how do I disable the color feature, meaning when i hover over a taskbar button it matches the icon of the program, how do I stop this?
