On Bigmuscle's page http://www.glass8.eu/download.html  download the Command line tool to change window's composition attributes at the bottom.  Extract it.  I put the SetWindowCompositionAttribute.exe in Windows\System32.  Then with Notepad I pasted in this:

 

SetWindowCompositionAttribute.exe class Shell_TrayWnd accent 0 0 0 0
SetWindowCompositionAttribute.exe class Shell_TrayWnd blur true

 

and save it as Taskbarblur.cmd

 

I put it in shell:startup and copied it to my desktop.

 

The reason I copied it to my desktop is that whenever I press the Start Button the blur goes away, and the taskbar reverts back to default.  If anyone knows of a way around this I would be eternally grateful.

Yeah, I like using ClassicShell's full glass mode myself. However, this Aero Glass mod kinda messed it up. It was readable immediately before applying Aero Glass to my 9926, but immediately after the mod I can no longer read text on the start menu.

 

Also, on my 2560x1440 DVI monitor dragging windows are no longer smooth, and its jerks hard core when I go from screen to screen. On the Dell however it is smooth. Weird... Anyway, what is the method for uninstalling this Aero Modification? Do I just delete the C:/AeroGlass folder? I did not use the installer, I just did it all manually. Looks good, especially if I use white and drop the color intensity to its lowest setting, then it looks like glass. Very nice indeed.

This cmd window doesn't seem to go away. It been about 30 minutes so far. Also it seems it not accepting my key as the Aero Glass watermark is still there. Also when I close the cmd window it reappears again straight away. The stable version seem to be better for me. With that after a few minutes it say it can't download the symbols for my version of Windows. I just then click on cancel and it works. Don't get any error messages after that. Here is the Debug Log info.

it probably doesnt go away since it's a DEBUG version, just minimize it and be happy.
