How to get the old standard skin back

I have just updated to 6.00.064 and the background is now a very pale blue/green.
I preferred the original, standard, windows type grey background. I don't like any of the 'new' skins.
How can I get this back?

The skin should have remained the same. Have you tried View > Skins > Disable Skin?

Yes, I've tried that, it doesn't seem to do anything.

Perhaps that is the effect of Aero on the skin?

I'm on Windows XP/SP3.

I've been a bit slow on my forum reading lately...
It's not really a skin, just a toolbar background image. I wasn't too happy about it
myself as it breaks the look and feel of my Windows setup.
Just go into where ever you installed SlimBrowser, go into the images directory
and you'll find a barback.png file. Just delete or rename it and everything
goes back to whatever it was.

I've just installed 6.00.072 and the pale blue background is still there.
Is this a permanent unalterable thing now?
If so then this is a backward step; I will have to do the getaround every time I install a new version, groan!!!
Why have you done this, what's the benefit?
Please please put it back to as it was before.
