Windows 7

I am registered blind, and have had to suffer Vista/7's sky blue 'selected item' colour for about 4 years now. My parent's eyesights are getting worse now as they get older. We are all running either Vista or 7 machines. We would like to keep Aero enabled rather than revert back to ''Classic''.

Has everyone who simply wanted to do this trick just to increase visibility 'really' paid 16.40Euros for each computer they want this on (since the liscense agreement says it's for one user only and not to share the key.)

I ask because I just don't have that sort of money to 'buy the fix' for 6 machines at 14.22 each or 85.32 in total (plus extra bank charges for converting the money into euros).
