Change color of taskbar and title bar

Hi

Most probably a stupid question

Is there a way to change the default gray/blue color of Windows 7 Basic theme (NOT Aero/classic)?

I have searched around, including Window Color and Appearance - Change - Windows 7 Help Forums ) and every tutorial and nothing

I suppose there is no way?

Thanks

I'm going for a fairly Vista-esque theme in which the taskbar and windows are black. In Vista, the title of an open window in the upper left would be white so it's very easy to read on the black background. I'd like to do the same thing with W7. I've gone to Advanced Appearance Settings and...
