Screenshot of effect: Update Manager is highlighted with orange glow

In the screenshot, you can see that I have the Unity Rotated Plugin.

I modified the files in /usr/share/unity/4 that removed the outer squares around the icons so they simply float, but, I am stuck with the glowing box around an icon whenever it needs attention. What should I do to remedy this?

Edit: This is only on 11.10. 12.04 seems to have fixed the problem.

You can remove the outer glow line using CCSM but it will replace the glowing Icon background (I think you can understand what i mean here, it's the "glowing" icon background, not the icon background) it's in the unity plugin in the CCSM –  Prasad RD Mar 16 '12 at 6:34
Just so I know, what exactly do I change to remove the outer glow? I think I removed it but it's still there. Also, I found the glow background .png, but every time I change it, it always restores itself. –  Ryan McClure Mar 16 '12 at 6:48
Do you still have this problem on 12.04? –  izx Jun 2 '12 at 20:11
Hi izx. Currently, this problem is not on 12.04. It was on 11.10, both on the default Unity Plugin and on the Unity Rotated one. –  Ryan McClure Jun 2 '12 at 20:44
