    theme. I have it installed/using it already but I'd like to modify the color of the taskbar/windows but keep the same XP "look". Whereas if I just changed the window color it wouldnt have the XP taskbar look/etc.

    Nah, better to just use Windows Style Builder. It's a payed app but is the best there is for themes.
    Well worth the money and a recommended buy, if you can spend the time learning it.

    Most theme resources are situated in the aero.msstyles file in the Windows\Resources\Themes folder and can be edited with the software.
    Some can be manually altered within the shellstyle.dll file, through altering the UIFILE text but requires some advanced knowledge in resource handling.

    In any case you can find 'VSB guide' or 'guide to theme building' online to see 'how' VSB works and what it can do...
