Windows 7: Any apps to enable more color customization for Windows 7 interface?

a lot of things got lost in this version [i'm guessing you started over from scratch to fix the issues]. can you reapply those changes? here is a quick list again...

- remove glow around title text
- make title text white, even when maximized
- desaturate blue tinting to gray
- can you set the item highlight color to specifically: RGB = 0 , 128 , 192

Which 1 did you use the UxStyle Core Beta or Universal Theme Patcher?

The Services window will open look for Unsigned Themes on the right side, then hit the Stop text on the left, you will see a window open show it stopping & it will close it's self.
