I cannot get this to fully work. Its as-though the custom taskbar is built in a few parts as only some of it changes to default.I also tried to reverse engineer it started with a default msstyles and tried to add just the taskbar images to it to see if i could create a new theme with just the custom taskbar but this also failed miserably not all the taskbar changed.
I think I may buy the program you suggested and try with that it seems much simpler.

Thanks

Are you working on the theme & using it at the same time? If so you cannot do that, you need to use a different theme & logoff/logon to change it.

No I switched to a basic theme whilst working on the aero side.Its odd I cant even replicate the custom taskbar in a default msstyles just to check.I think there maybe some extra images some where although im not sure im still new to themes.

Try 1 of these 2 ways
If you are working on the default aero.msstyles (basic or aero) you need to use Windows Classic theme & logoff/logon then do the changes & test then repeat.

If working on a custom.msstyles (basic or aero) you need to switch to a different theme & logoff/logon then do the changes & test then repeat.

& have you done 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes

If using WSB it has a text button & as long as you are using a different theme you can test & change with out logging off/on.

Thanks Jerry got it working to some extent.Ive got the default taskbar put into the custom theme and that works fine I just cant copy the effect of the custom taskbar into a default theme I can get the taskbar to change but cant get the dark effect where the icons are in my attachment im presuming thats another image inlayed on top.In short im trying to get the taskbar from the theme into a default mmstyles for the bottom taskbar small icons.Am i missing something with the darker part of the image.
This is what im getting but it should look like the image in my previous post.

Sorry Jerry im confusing even myself.
Ive added the default task bar to the custom theme fine and that looks great. I was just trying to add the custom taskbar to a default msstyles to see if I could stop the blurring in the system tray.Like I said before im new the themes and was just trying to find out what is possible, however I cant get the custom taskbar to display correctly when I add it to a default msstyles.
This is what I end up with.

It should look like the one from the custom theme

It looks like you need to put the custom image in the default aero.msstyles at #845
