Need help with creating a Windows 7 Theme

I used 'Take Ownership' on the whole System32 folder, was that a good idea?

That was probably not a good idea.

Look at Post #38 of this thread will tell you how to start a new theme Start menu color change ??
Then you will need to edit the .msstyles, and if you want to make a theme with pictures in the start menu you will need to purchase Ave's Windows7 Style Builder as it is the only program that I know of to add pictures to the start menu, to make them look right you will be changing some sizing margins and content margins which can only be done with Windows Style Builder.
Creating a theme like the one you posted is very difficult especially if you've never done one before I would recommend joining Virtual Customs there is some very talented theme makers there that would probably help you out better than I could.
