Resource image number for light blue selection bar

Can someone tell me which image resource I need to edit to change the Windows 7 menu selection bar that is so light? I have exported 599 images and I cannot isolate the correct one.

If you are using the default aero theme look at image # 991 It will look like (screenshot) 2 images top 1 is Hot 2nd is Pressed.
If it's at custom theme post a link to it & I will look at it
Jerry

It's a 9x63 px

You cannot edit it while you are using it
Make sure you are using Windows Classic Theme, log off & log on edit it then try it.

What editor are you using for the image? Use Photoshop, Gimp, Paint

I used IconFX to make the changes and save as 991.png. It will import as a separate resource, but it will not replace 991.

Edit: Another funny thing is that ResHacker will not allow me to view the .msstyle file. It says it is open, but I don't see it...

I have never seen IconFX used to edit the aero.msstyle
I use Ave's Windows7 Style Builder
Then there is Restorator - Bome Software - Restorator - the resource editor for customization, localization, and translation.
Try anolis resourcer Anolis or
Resource Hacker - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
