Patching windows for the use of third party themes

Hi,

I would like to use third party themes but I don't want just some fly by night patcher for the system files. Does someone have a good recommendation..

You will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes
I use the 1st one.
If you need help let us know.

Thanks Bongo appreciated. I used to use the universal theme patcher but I don't trust it.

Ya there was just one installation issue and that was caused by Outpost Security Suite apparently it was blocking the service from being installed correctly until I shut it off. Then all started fine service is running beautifully.
