Rainmeter - you can get themes at deviantart.com just type in for example my clock 'digital reflective clock rainmeter' rainmeter.com

yahoo widgets - weather pro, calendar pro, recycle bin pro (change bin icon to token bin icon)

rocketdock icons 'lucid icons' - deviantart

What VS is that? I have used it, I just can't remember the darn name. =/

I'm also curious, what program did you use to change the icons. I'm using Icon Packager, and I can't find a darn good token skin for it. =/

Sorry - I can't help you with the Explorer, be interested in the answer though. =)

The VS is Dark Soft i believe. Tekken browse Deviantart for Rocketdock skin called Glass Curve it's nice and black and looks like a Mac Dock somewhat..will go well with the theme.

EDIT: Rocket Dock skin here

I'm not sure if this is easily done, as you have over 130 views.

Just to keep your topic on the top here as well, what system files are you using, they all look really nice here. =)

most of them can be found by searching token in deviant art under customization but it's just your standard patch to apply your own visual styles along with the editing the explorer shells i can't remember the exact .DLL's but it's simple as.

Well what i requested isn't hard i don't think i have seen screenshots of the things i want these people just can't seem to find the original owner of the screenshots or how to do what i want :P oh well i'm patient

And make the link a bit bigger then the normal size.
