    styleXP is really good, its a reasonable size and you can customize pretty much everything with it

    i'm not so up with the theme area, though i know bits and peices. Have a gander at the link:

    http://www.neowin.net/forum/lofiversion/in...hp/t339820.html

    It will dispell a lot of the hearsay about theme hackin under windows. To quote from the link:
    Q: Why donít people use Stylexp?

    A: The uxtheme hack has several advantages over Stylexp.
    -the uxtheme hack is simple. You simply replace the file with a hacked one and thatís it. No installations, no need to run and configure programs, no hassle.
    -the uxtheme hack does not waste resources. Stylexp patches uxtheme.dll in memory, but the uxtheme hack replaces the file physically on the system. This means that you are unlocked forever (until Microsoft creates a new uxtheme.dll file).
    -the uxtheme hack is completely free!
    Note that the link provides some resources for editing themes that are very handy, so check em out and have fun!

    google search for uxtheme.dll hack. you should find an installer for it somehwere. most likely customize.org has it.

    Install the hack. Download the themes and move them to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\ and then double click on the theme file. That's all.
