    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!!!

    @Cerawy
    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..

    How do i get on touch with that person?

    I remember using a windows xp theme on windows 7 and i absolutely loved it, that was the only time where i was really enjoying using my computer.

    Classic shell only changes the start menu, but not the rest of the computer. I posted a screengrab of the xp theme so it should be clarified by now.

    @Edwin i got a backup of my computer, so its not a disaster if something goes wrong, as i can simply just recover it again with a few clicks.

    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.
