Dirty Windows 7 style for CSM 4.3.1

Way back last year I was trying to recreate the noise in Windows 10 programs into a menu skin.
I never figured it out. Gave up, put on back burner.
Theirs is a lot more even looking. Maybe they put the noise on the rgb channel, or glass color mask?
All I got was dirty noise.

The reason I'm releasing it now, instead of putting in the recycling bin, is this skin can have 7
different sizes of user picture inside the menu, copying the frameless type look in the Metro skin.

It might be of use to people with HIDPI displays. :)

The noise can be turned off so it looks clean.

Looking at how Windows 10 acrylic works:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/window ... le/acrylic

Is a little bit more complicated than just adding noise layer.
I could have done the noise to be more consistent using tiled feature in Classic Shell Menu skinning,
but I already had a large image to use for stretching submenu.
Trying to use big muscle Aero glass to get larger blur radius does not even work anymore. Too bad.

Extra note

If you don't like the lightish edge lines on user picture, drawn apparently by Windows,
use Ivo's alternate internal "User picture" option in the "General Behavior" tab.
Only .png, png transparent,.bmp can be used though.
