    Hey!

    Wanted to know where I can download Windows 7 Themes from and change it ... it can be a Visualization Preset or something that I have to use with a Program or something else...

    I want to customize mine to something like what Ravr did with his : http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs50/f/2009/317...s_7_by_ravr.png

    Any ideas or suggestions where to look?

    Googling sucks cuz too many results!

    Thanks,
    Z

    hehe Thanks DC, I already know how to do that for Win7.

    Was wondering if anyone knew where I can download some great looking themes. Win7themes.net has some ok ones but the one I posted up there that one looks cool with different icons and such...

    I asked Ravr about it and he messaged me something, RAVR is the ultimate Guru of Themes and Customisations in Windows.

    "Easy. First, you need to either patch your system or use UxStyle. Personally I suggest UxStyle. Its fast easy to use and install, and provides all the functionality of patching with, almost, none of the risk. You can find this software here: http://uxstyle.com/

    Once you've installed that you'll want to find you a theme. You can go to DeviantArt to look for themes. However, you're looking for a specific one: http://ap-graphik.deviantart.com/art/Soft7...ows-7-144948406

    Once you've downloaded and Unrar'd the file move soft7.theme & soft7 folder) into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and click (or double click) on soft7.theme. This will change the theme of the computer.

    The start button and Icons are separate. To apply the Start button(Download: http://ap-graphik.deviantart.com/art/steel...ows-7-141635507 ) make sure you have administration powers over your computer. Go to C:\Windows\ and Right click on your Explorer.exe. Rename it Explorer.original. Open the file you just downloaded and move the Exporer.exe file to your C:\Windows\ and restart your computer.

    The above is risky so don't do it if you don't feel you can accomplish it. If something goes wrong you may have to perform a system restore, or download this program: http://snowbird.en.softonic.com/ Which is a lightweight explorer alternative. Its best to have this just in case you ------ up.

    To use this program if you screw up press ctrl+alt+esc and open the task manager. Press File and New Task (Run) and insert this text into the box: \Program Files\snowbird\Snowbird.exe . When you've opened the program navigate to your C:\Windows\ folder and rename the explorer.exe and change the Explorer.original to Explorer.exe and restart.

    Icons I can't really help you with. Its basically going from one program to another changing the icons by right clicking on the program and hitting properties. Then you go to shortcut & press "Change Icon" navigate to the folder with your icons and click on the one you'd like to use. The specific Icon pack you're looking for is: http://brsev.deviantart.com/art/Token-128429570

    Hope that helps.
