Changing the segmented green progress bar in windows xp

By winch1020 ·
Does anyone know of a tweak for changing the unattractive segmented green progress bar in windows xp to a solid green colour,without having to install another software application language such as visual basic onto the xp operating sustem.The Sonic progress bar program
has to be run on a program such as visual basic.
If you try running the Sonic progress bar directly on xp, it opens up as just another file in its own window.
Also, the progress bar program that is available for free download on the web site has to be run on an application such as visual basic.
I would like to be able to delete that thin vertical white line that is in each of the green segements of the xp progress bar or as I call it, the loading indicator status bar.
Thanks, Rbtbob

Isn't the GREEN bar indicative of Service Pack 1 ?...

I may be completely wrong but I've only ever seen a green progress bar back when SP1 was the norm.

If you upgrade to SP2 the bar will become BLUE and perhaps less annoying. You'll also have given your system a much-needed enhancement.

If I am correct, your system is at least 4 years out of date.

Try this link:

My blue bar only makes 2 passes though, so it hardly seems worth changing its colour.

Might try it for a laugh though.
