Such as making them all colored all the time? Yes. but be very careful. You can download and install a utility called Resource Hacker. Then go into Browseui.dll and remove the grey toolbar bitmap and replace it with the same one, only in color. I will give you a link to a site called Virtual Plastic. It has the information you are looking for. Be sure to make a backup of this file and know the DOS command to put it back in case you hose the project and cannot get back into windows. I changed my toolbar to colored buttons. I changed it back because I found it was hard on my eyes.

If you are not comfortabel, don't do it.
Also, if you want to have IE toolbar Wallpaper, download this utility and use it.

Look for Toolbar Wallpaper. This works for IE 6 too.

If you want toolbar Wallpaper for Your regular windows folders that's possible too.
Here's how:
Open the registry and go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

Click on toolbar. In the right pane create a new string value. Name it BackBitmap EDIT: Sorry. I typo'd in the registry file.
Double click on it to modify.
Modify it to the path of the bitmap you would like to use.

For instance C:\windows\clouds.bmp
