    If you want a third party theme you may get one at this site.

    Much as I love a challenge, I don't wanna nuke the only OS I have left!
    Ran many a themes from Cleodesktop and others on earlier Builds, but messin with authui.dll, UXinit.dll and such is too risky.
    The system files you need to modify now have some of the highest permissions in the system; one mistake and you're Nuked!!!

    I would get a hold of Cleodesktop and have a chat with him to make sure it would work.
    I believe he has a tutorial and documentation on how to make it work on CU.

    CS can provide what you are looking for, as @Edwin posted , using third party Themes is not the way to go. CS can provide the XP Start Menu and The Explorer Shell. If that is not what you want then I am at a loss..

    Is there any way to get in touch with that person?

    I remember using a windows xp theme on windows 7, and i absolutely loved it. So obviously i would like it back again.

    Also, i got aomei to backup my computer. So its not a big problem if something goes wrong.

    Classic shell only changes the start menu, not the rest of the computer. I posted a screengrab of the xp theme that i want in my original post.

    I googled him and found his website, so i sent him a message from there instead.

    Well he didnt respond, so i will try to get in touch with him again.

    I hope someone will make a working windows xp theme some day.

    Im using classic shell as my start menu, its one of the best inventions for windows that ive come across. What i am looking for is an XP theme that changes the whole theme of the computer to windows XP. I had it working for windows 7 and absolutely loved it and will do anything to get it back.
    Take a look at this:

    Thats interesting, im going to take a look at it right now.

    Okay, so it works!

    The taskbar now has a beautiful windows XP theme, thanks.

    Only thing i dislike is that you have to download the theme and put it in your classic shell folder before you can use it, buts its not a big deal. I also prefer the windows xp theme in my original post, since it has a light blue color in the notification area to make it easier to see your programs.

    The rest of windows still has the same old dreadful looking theme though, but its progress.
