Welcome to the Seven Forums

It looks like you are using a third-party custom theme.

Switch to the default Aero theme and then log off and log on again then do the following.

Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor folder and get a copy of shellstyle.dll.
Then go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\THE THEME YOU ARE WANTING CHANGED\Shell\NormalColor folder and rename the shellstyle.dll to shellstyle.bak.dll and put a copy of the shellstyle.dll from Aero in there.
