Windows 7: Rounding the Start Menu

Rounding the Start Menu

I use my taskbar on the top of my screen, so when I open my start menu, the top 2 corners are still rounded, while the lower two are squared. I've gotten this mostly fixed, but I've run into some trouble with the lower right corner. When I tried rounding off the corner, it caused it to stretch very strangely.
Anyone know a way to fix this?

Here. There's also a strange box around the restart button.
I did have to make the texture a lot wider than it was before in order to fit the curve on it, could that be part of it?
Should I post the individual textures?

I tried changing the image size & the sizing margins with Windows Style Builder & got the same. Have you seen a custom theme with rounded corner there? If so post a link & I will look at it. My guess is that corner needs to stay square. But not sure.

I don't think I've seen any, no.
Actually, I just did a quick search, and I've found 2 so far.

The vista one would not work. I downloaded the Dark City & it has square corner to.

So there's no way to do it, then?
I did see a third one with rounded corners, but it was a windowblinds theme, and I don't want to use windowblinds.
Well, thanks for the help! I guess I can live with it being square.
