No,what theme are you using?
Minotar i guess you allready know this but the solution for that "false color" is the alpha channel.. It has to be set not transparent in the org image area. If you can give me the PSD i will make it for you

No,i dont know what your on about actually lol.
I didnt save the PSD format,just jpeg and .BMP
Judging by his picture i was guessing his taskbar was set to a colour other than red or white
But i dont set any of it as transparent?

Well basicly all you have to do is select all the orbs and make them into one layer
then select the layer and go to channels tab. Down in the area where you see "RGB" channels there's buttons at the bottom. there should be a button to make new channel. that new channel is called alpha 1 and after you made the alpha one there's this button which is like square with small ball on it press that and it creates Alpha 2 now delete the alpha 1 and save the BMP and reapply it to the explorer.exe it should appear as it should. If you have problems PM the image to me and i make it at friday. Bit busy with school atm.

I very much like the 'I've been out for 9 years' - and never felt the urge to re-offend?
