Umm... what do you mean when you refer to the glass effect on the "right click option"? I can't recall a time on my Vista machine when a right click menu had a transparency effect.

Can you post a screenshot to ImageF1 so we can have a look?

The taskbar does, but only if an open window is not maximised.

How Transparent do you want to go - It can be done.

Download Transparent Taskbar (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop-Enhancements/Shell-Replacements/Transparent-TaskBar.shtml) - install it, you will get a slider to adjust the transparency, once set to where you want you right click the slider and close it, then the task bar will remain at the setting you selected.
To adjust you open the program from all programs and change. The Before and After screen shot (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Before_and_after1217799006.jpg) shown here is set to full as normal and 3/4 transparent, any lighter and it disappears almost completely.
