here's a link (http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707) for a thing called UXTheme.dll- I have it on my computer, and the best thing is that it doesn't use any system resources like Window Blinds!

Follow the directions...Yes, it takes about 10 minutes to do, but it's well worth it.

Then get some style at DA... let me guess... you need a link to that too?

You said you have skins right?

All you do is move the skins folder to C:\windows\resources\themes

make sure that the skin folder has the same name as the .msstyle file.

Once your skin folder is in the themes folder open the .msstyle file like you would any other program, and that should do it for you.

Ya. the prob is, lol, is that the preveiw is the right one, but when i choose it, it just turns color. The buttons and the taskbar are still the same style, just different color.

It just modifys microsofts theme system, unlike style xp that just loads it into the memory.

"hacked .dll" <<< is it allowed here?

azn_rebel99
09-17-2005, 05:52 PM
Its "hacked" cuz the default .dll wont let you skin the taskbar. The other one will let you.

SEARCH BUTTON BIATCH- USE IT!

check black fuses post. I did exactly what the link he gave said and I am currenlty running a theme with it. you need to download a small program to swap the file through CMD because windows won't aloow you to.

^^^No, don't lash out like that. I know azn rebel's situation. He has used the command prompt program for swapping the uxtheme.dll and it did not matter. As a matter of fact, I know the problem is deeper because he has also tried WinBlinds and the problem exists still.

if that is the case then I owe her an appology, still doesn't change the fact that she should have checked about 5 threads lower than hers, but...

herso, I didn't call her a "bitch" i was just using the phrase figuratively.
