He want to change color or put picture on start menu only, as I understand...
I think that he can't do this anymore...
You zigzag???
thats to change the login screen (easy) its much harder to change the boot animation as win 7 does not accept that (they belive it to be a security issue) again im working on it and will post when ive got it sussed

Anyone come up with a solution that doesn't need a seperate app to change the left side color (from white) of the start menu yet?

There's no way to do it unless you install a theme with a transparent start menu. There are a few around but none to my liking. I want the default Aero theme with no changes except a transparent start menu is anyone is feeling like helping me out.

I dont know if this is any help to you, i tried it a while ago but found it wasnt for me or used it for long enough to see if it had any bugs.

Just another option for a much asked question. I am suprised that someone has not made a basic theme that just changes the start menu as there are so many requests for such a thing.
