Use this tool to change the Start Menu button:
Change Windows 7 Start Orb with Windows 7 Start Button Changer | The Windows Club

No idea about selection colour though.

Also is there any way you can change the Inactive Window Border to white frame with black text?

Not sure on that, since there doesn't seem to be a color property for the inactive window aero frame - it just seems to go off what you choose in the Personalize screen. Although... one of those two opacity values I edited was what changed the window from being a pale white/grey into being fully black like the active window. If one messed around with that they might be able to get the inactive window to turn paler/whiter - although I suspect it would just turn more transparent instead.

No idea yet how to edit the text color of the aero frames (aka window boards) yet. Love it being white personally though, they now stand out against lots of different colored frames.

I have noticed one thing keeps happening.

At first I had to End Task on the dwm.exe (Desktop Window Manager) process in Task Manager when Windows spontaneously changed to Windows Basic theme and wouldn't change back. It's happened again now that I shut my PC off for the night and came back to it today.

One section of the Windows Explorer user interface goes back to the Windows Classic look for some reason. It is the ''Organize'' bar, as I call it:



In aero this has a blue-ish hue and the buttons are placed differently. No idea why this happens, just thought it was something worth mentioning.

Oh and by the way, the theme files you gave me do not work, and I am doing it right as I tested it with Bongo's original NoGlow theme and it worked.

Are you sure you sent me the right theme?

Yeah, I sent you the msstyle/theme that I created after having made all the alterations; but I didn't think they would work as I keep having to re-make the changes myself.
