    Theres a program called 'style xp' i believe. Then you can download the skins from www.themexp.org.

    I use Style XP just to enhance the basic format set out. I think the alienware one is something that completely changes the set up of your desktop. I always liked those but never figured out where to get them at.

    Yeah, it slows down your computer a lot and can mess up some other things if you are not too careful.

    I get mine from deviantART: http://browse.deviantart.com/skins/windows...rder=9&limit=24

    I use an unlocked uxtheme.dll instead of 3rd party progs. StyleXP gave me probs and WindowsBlinds lagged my comp a bit.
    I find using an unlocked uxtheme.dll way better because you can actually choose your downloaded themes from your Control Panel (Display) with no installations, no need to run and/or configure progs, and no hassle. ^_^

    Or you can google "uxtheme" and download the patcher at the first link that comes up. I use that and it works to perfection.
