Windows 7: Image ID for start menu all programs background color

Image ID for start menu all programs background color

Hello I could successfully change my background image of the start menu with sevenforums existing threads. Unfortunately I could not find any image IDs for the start menu all programs background image. I searched through the threads and through Restorator, but with no result.
May someone please share the IDs for 'all programs background image'?
Would be very much appreciated.

PS: I changed already the white space of these images to grey:

I could successfully change the start menu all programs background color with the programs: 'Vista Style Builder 1.5 (also for win7)'. You would just go to 'Explorer & Shell' / 'Explorer' / 'Tree view' and change there the value FILLCOLOR:COLOR to your desired color.
I think 'all programs' does not use images and therefor you would only be able to do it with Vista Style Builder. Greetings
