Default How do I change the color the tasbar flashes in XP?

For example, the flash when I get an IM from someone on AIM. The tasbar button thing will flash orange. I want to change this color - is it possible?

That's a very interesting question. I will do some google researching and see what I come up with. If I find anything I'll post back.-
