Windows 7: Smoke in Taskbar after Vista Theme Install

Smoke in Taskbar after Vista Theme Install

I accidentally installed a theme that I made for Vista, and now there seems to be a smokey appearance to my Windows 7 themes. I have tried installing the different themes and adjusting the customization options, but nothing seems to help. The window border transparency is unaffected--only the taskbar is smokey. Does anyone know if there is a setting buried somewhere that alters the transparency of the taskbar?


I just changed my desktop to white and my theme to clear, so the smokey appearance is obvious now. When I open a new window, it looks like the border is smokey as well, but becomes clear after just a moment.
