Still called the progress bar, and is displayed depending on what theme you are using, most custom themes come with different colors to match the theme itself.

You need to edit a .msstyles file to change it, and numbers for the progress bar varies from theme to theme.

Hope this helps.

The start up sound is kept in the system32/imageres.dll file, resource name wave, #5080. It's the only wave file in their by the way.

Progress bar color -- how to change?
OK, I had to revert my nvidia drivers to earlier state since blueray would not play with the latest beta (mobile) drivers, but now my progress bars are this SUPER intense green or some reason. Is there any way to change the color? Could some theme file be corrupted? Any suggestions??
