Windows 7 Full transparent glass theme problem

Hi, i installed an theme for windows 7 that makes everything transparent, i patched my pc for 3rd party themes, i have fullglass.exe (that comes with theme) running, but i have one problem,
if you right click on desktop and select personalize, then left side is white (Everything else is transparent, there are links to Control panel, change mouse pointer, change desktop icons etc..)
So, how to get that white thing transparent.

You may need black images for it to work.
They are bitmap image #632 and 633 in the shell32.dll in C:\Windows\System32 for 32-bit (x86) if you are using a 64-bit system it will be in both C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64
Did any system files come with this theme, you may also want contact the theme maker and see what they recommend.

Hi and thank you for fast reply, i did not get any system files with the theme, just theme files to put in /Resources/Themes.
Anyways i uninstalled this theme, because it made notepad, paint and other program colors messed up.

You're welcome, that full transparency can look nice but it makes it very difficult to use anything.
