    In that archive... there's a progressmeter.css file in the \global\ folders that deals with styling... I think you MIGHT be able to change the colors there... going to use Stylish to try to override the defaults.

    I found references to the following, but they don't exist in the classic.jar file:
    chrome://global/skin/progressmeter/progressmeter-busy.gif
    chrome://global/content/bindings/progressmeter.xml

    Maybe its in the EXE itself?

    Yes i checked out Zeratul`s file
    Other than the wrong name(should be aero.msstyles not aerobluebars.msstyles ) there was nothing wrong with it

    I also looked at the taskbar green progressbar but seems that this isnt controlled from the theme at all.My bet is that this is instead controlled from some other file but i still have some testing to verify that.

    It could well be Explorer.exe in which case you'll need to ResEdit of similar to change the files. I'll take a look when I have time.

    Nope.Checked:
    explorer.exe
    user32.dll
    ExplorerFrame.dll
    authui.dll
    themeui.dll
    spwizimg.dll
    shell32.dll
    imageres.dll

    Nothing even resembling the green bars...

    Perhaps it's scripted rather than a simple image?

    Thanks tomorrow & Zeratul. I installed on Vista x86 with Basic theme & it works great!
    Sooooo much nicer to look at than green :)

    I have the taskbar progress colour changed, the problem I have is that Progress_MoveOverlay looks awful with the image I'm using currently.

    I'm using VistaStyleBuilder, but they're listed as images 1154 and 1155, hopefully the numbers will be the same in reshacker etc.

    Many thanks for the original images by the way, I've hated those green progress bars for years. :)

    I was using Vista Style Builder, but it seemed to be causing issues when replacing certain images so I switched to just using Vista Style Builder to browse the theme with a nice GUI then replacing images with Resourcer.
