Windows 7: Theme in Progress

Theme in Progress

Hi.
As some of you might already know, I am working on a BattleForge-theme for Windows 7.
All was well, using the built-in themepack-thingie that comes with Windows 7.
I created a themepack which automatically modifies sounds and wallpapers of Windows 7 with a simple double-click.
Furthermore I created a script that automatically replaces the logon background with the one in the themepack.

So now my themepack has got:
Wallpapers, sound, custom logon-background and a user icon.

Unfortunately this is not enough for the average user.
I had many requests stating that they want custom Start Orb, Taskbar-texture, Start menu-texture, icons and whatnot.

With lots of help from this great forum I have managed to create (and even apply!) a custom Start Orb, which looks great imho.
I have also managed to change the texture of the taskbar, etc. -Using a program called Windows Blinds by Stardock.

What I need now is some feedback.
I will post screenshots below, and would like some feedback on how to improve.
I have other textures which I extracted from BattleForge, but the gray one is the one I like best. (I will attach the others as well.)

Thanks in advance.

Hi mate

Just had a look at your theme, looks pretty good. You may want to change the horrible white left pane on the start menu. Also a nice touch is to put the info pane at the top in my computer and change the colour. just a few suggestions. Good luck.

Some custom buttons would be cool, even some modified colors. But I like that texture, and everything else is great. Good job, hope this goes well for you!
