Windows 7: Change custom aero theme to basic

Change custom aero theme to basic

Right, so... I got a theme that I really like from deviantart, my only problem with it is that it uses aero which I hate with a passion. I've asked the creator about a basic version but his response was basically 'too much work'.

This got me wondering about changing it into a basic theme using something like Ave's Style Builder. How exactly would I go about doing this?

AnonJohn, when you say a Basic version, do you mean a win7 Basic or Win7 Classic style?

Can you post a link to the theme you speak of?
I might be able to help you change it. No promises though. LOL

I am sorry for the extremely late response... Yes, I mean W7 Basic, not Classic.
If that offer still stands, I'd very much like that. Uniko by givesno**** on DeviantArt

I'll check out the site A Guy linked.

I'm not sure if this is what you're asking for....
Unzip the file and place the .theme file in Windows\Resources\Themes
This is what it looks like on my desktop.

Unfortunately not, thanks for trying though. I'm going to use a guide to make a new theme and just use the stuff from Uniko or something.
