UIManager does not work with WinXP

Please help me me with this, its urgent. (Second attempt)
Under WindowsXP(with XP-Style enabled) buttons are displayed with a 3D-Shade.
So any Swing-Buttons are displayed in 3D-Style even when the backgroundcolor is set manually or the UIManager is handling the Buttoncolor.
How can I change my code to keep the buttons colored, even in XP-Style?
PLEASE, there must be an answer!
TY
