Windows 7 Aero Glass Streak Tweak

This small tweak removes the faint glass steaklines in Windows Aero in all glassed areas including the taskbar.

How

Go to your registry and edit the DWORD32-bit entry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\

ColorizationGlassReflectionIntensity

Set the value to “0”, then restart your Aero. (Default hex value 32, decimal value 50)

To do that, I switched to Vista basic and switch back to my Aero theme. Alternately type these run the following lines in a command prompt (not case sensitive):

NET STOP UxSms
NET START UxSms

Other Notes

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is
    completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
