Windows 7: Adding contrast to the active/blinking windows?

Adding contrast to the active/blinking windows?

Hi all!

Is there a way to add contrast to the blinking windows? Under XP, I could glance from the other side of the room and see if someone has spoken to me in MSN as the blue blinking gave such a good contrast (yeah, I used the classic mode). Also, the active window was also much more visible under XP.

I like the smoother look of 7, but the contrasts are plain useless. How could I enhance them?
