    XP theme help

    I am just using the built in silver theme. I want to change it to a black theme.

    I tried a few programs but they all looked like junkware.

    What is the best program to use and where do you get the themes for it from?


    Thanks,
    Shagster

    The 5 color one has blue black green silver and somethign else in it.


    How to use it is to run the patcher and cancle the windows file protection thing, and then reboot.

    then copy the folder royal blah blah blah into the themes folder

    then under display properties, go to the appearance tab and select royale in windows and buttons, then choose your color.

    There is a theme called "black out xp".

    Here is my desktop with it running....



    If you have problems getting the mod to install, go to the registry key 'sfcdisable' and set it to 1. Then run the program, if it still doesn't work, .old the uxtheme.dll in system32 and then run it again. After the restart remember to set it back to 0
