The visual style of IE11 scroll bars on Windows 7 do not match the native Windows 7 Aero theme. The flat scrollbars do not highlight on mouse over. This greatly reduces their discoverability and visibility on no-touch devices (for which Windows 7 was mainly designed). The flat (Modern UI style) scroll bars among other (Aero) UI elements also look inappropriate and unprofessional.

Reproduce? Jesus, just install IE10/11 on Windows 7 and look at the scroll bars. IE11 on Windows 7 has Windows 8 scroll bars style. We dont want this style of scroll bars on Windows 7, if you release browser for Windows 7 then use the Windows 7 style/theme, even Chrome on Windows 7 has native looks of scroll bars which is in Windows 7.
