Windows 7: all i want is to change explorer's background color

all i want is to change explorer's background color

open any folder, and you see three panels. one on the left for changing the directory. one on the bottom for details. one main window with all the files

i just want to change the default colors of these panels and the text without disabling aero. i was able to do this very easily in windows xp

i have been searching for methods to do this periodically over the years. i dont want to download some elaborate theme from deviantart. i tried playing with some convoluted style editor in the past, and i dont want to do that again. this should not be complicated and is a massive oversight on microsofts part.

please help, if anyone still is here
