Still, it shouldnt make it crash
Have you installed all the updates available on Windows Update? (the ones that you have to install, not the optional ones)
Might be an issue with that, thats causing this problem

Just wondering how i can get "custom" themes which are already made? Ive seen a few websites but dont know if theyre trusted or not. I just googled "Windows 7 Themes" and a few near the top looked a bit dodgey. Although the ones on the actual windows website arent very good.


Wonderful! Glad to hear that so far, so good.

To the themes question, be sure to create a restore point before trying out any foreign packages. Theoretically, they can do no harm but.... Be safe, not sorry.

I've not read the referenced material but I'm sure you will find it helpful. When we were back in the beta & release candidate stages of Win7, I experimented with rolling my own. Now I've got what I want. That said, the final version of Win 7 has terrific "roll your own" capabilities built-in. If you haven't already, take a look, see, try at:
  1. Rt-click on empty spot on Desktop
  2. Personalize (at the bottom of that drop-down list)
  3. Help (from the menu at the top)
  4. View Help (from the list shown)
