Windows 7: Custom Themes, Icons and Start Buttons.

If anyone is trying to update or re-install and cant re-run the install because of a 'Already Installed' warning it's because the 'Delete_Backups._cmd' isn't being renamed automatically,
To fix this just rename the file 'Delete_Backups._cmd' to 'Delete_Backups.cmd' in the 'Data' folder and run it as admin. (or use the download below in this post and run that as admin.)


If you've downloaded in the last ten minutes then a new cleanup script is already included without the need to rename anything. (called 'UninstallCleanup.cmd')


(If you've downloaded the icons in the past and dont fancy re-downloading the whole pack, here's the new 'Cleanup' script seperatly, just place it in the 'Data' folder.)




All files (as of 29th July 2009 01:15 BST) have now been updated to resolve the re-install problem.

Do you like these, or do you prefer the yellow?
