Issue with changing the border of Windows Explorer

I've recently started with customizing my own Windows Theme and already encountered an issue i cant solve. I just cant get rid of the round Aero corners, they are always shining through. Already searched tons of Forums, changed every "Top" image i have found in Windows Style Builder, read Guides to solve it by my own but it just will not work.
