Changing Text Highlight Colour in Vista

:) Well, having bought a laptop, and used it under Windows Classic view for a while, figured I'd be brave and give vista aero theme a spin.

Loads of customisable settings and easy to find - except the glaringly obvious one - the text highlight colour which is currently a very bright blue - horrible!

Anyone know how to change it - googled this before posting, visisted my forums and all describe how to change everything but the highlight colour.

Something so simple - yet so difficult.

Other things I don't like about Vista:

Pressing Alt-Tab to cycle through open apps/docs presents thumbnail images, as does clicking in the bar at the bottom of the screen - between quick launch and system tray icons.

Anyway of making the application icon more visible, preferably losing the thumbnail - which is just plain confusing?

I'm sure I'll find other annoyances - I do try to find the answers myself before posting, honest!

Thanks for your help :)
