Windows 7: Breaking the Glass

Breaking the Glass

I already know this will sound stupid to some, but....
On my recent install of Windows 7 Ultimate/32, I have a see-through (Glass) taskbar and I don't seem to be able to get rid of the glass look.

I really don't want to see my desktop showing through the taskbar.
Any help to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

I even tried installing the Classic Shell, which removed the Glass look in Windows 8.1, but not in Win-7.
Life is so full of little frustrations, I really don't need this one.

So I'm crying for "HELP!"

Thank You!

But, I did find the answer, not five minutes after opening this topic. My bad!

I found the check box for Transparent Task Bar in the "Color" window and UN-Checked the box and got rid of that infuriating Transparent Task Bar.

Thanks again!
