    Actually nothing, over at [H] a guy had me google neowin UXtheme multipatcher, it copies a new theme DLL file to replace the windows one, adn now I can add themes without running an application in the background.

    Pretty much, you want to put them in your [XP Installed Drive]:\Windows\resources\Themes\ Folder

    Deiviantart has the best selection listed under Visual Styles.

    ThemeXP.org has really cool ones, but then come with acoona toolbar and NEW.net, so stay away!

    After you unzip the folder to the themes folder you can select them under the appearance tab in display properties. Some are full themes, those you can select in the themes folder.

    You may need to open the Theme or Visual style file manually to get windows to see it the first time.

    Ya, Vista is coming out, don't care now, got a new toolbar

    Another good theme for FF I like is the Noia Extreme, only 2 that I use.

    they used a similar patch on style xp.. rename the dll. file to bak., run the patch, rename the new file to the dll... used to work, the ThemeXp.org site went to heck, so i don't use it anymore...

    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.
