Windows 7: NO WAY to change taskbar color

Yep, maybe we do the "old school" guys but we love to keep this place friendly and in a good mood...
Just feeling the need to make you understand that... Thanks for hearing me...!

So, i join here a zip with a mod basic theme for you.
I guess you know what to do but in case :
- if it's not done, patch your UXtheme file with the included patcher,
- copy the "Basic Red TB.Theme" file & the "Basic Red TB" folder in "C/\Windows\Resources\Theme"
- double-clic the "Basic Red TB.Theme".

That's it!
I hope you'll enjoy...

It only changed the cursor and background, didn't modify the taskbar at all. Thanks for trying.

Weird... worked perfectly here... Maybe a difference between Starter & Home...
Sorry for the question but are you sure of your way to install the theme??? Did you patch the UXtheme file...?

Please zip your current theme & post it here, i'll give it another try...

Well, i understand, now : the file you show me (custom.theme) is the path used by Windows for saving the properties of your current theme when you change yourself color, screensaver, wallpaper,... in the personnalization section. I also have one, everybody have one... So, what i need is your "aero" elements, shown in my last screenshot + the "basic" ones (i do not have "basic" in mine so maybe this is the one to be modded...) in the path C:\Windows\Resources\Themes". See ya!

I don't have "basic", just Aero, darth vader(installed myself), and your "Basic Red TB" theme. So, I've zipped up Aero. Let me warn you, "TrustedInstaller" does not allow me to modify anything in the themes folder.
