Windows 7: Anyone know how to make maxed title bar solid black?

Why does it need all this patching to run a 'Windows Visual Style File'? Do all the thousands of these require this treatment?

because it's a custom file
that's why it needs to be patched

i took a chance with this, and it successfully patched the theme files in 7229 x86. not many good styles out there yet, still looking for one that just gets rid of aero stripes in the taskbar and window borders, but it's good to know this tool is there.

thanks

Doesn't want to work for me on the Uxtheme patching. See screenshot here

It can remove watermarks, enable dreamscene, Uxtheme patcher for x86 and x64, and a few other things. Does not need installing runs from exe. Is safe, have scanned with Avast, malwarebytes and spybot search and destroy.

Any ideas on why it won't do the Uxtheme patching for me? (see above)

I think I've modified it in some way with your original suggested method.
Can anyone send me the original themeui.dll for 7201 64bit?
Thanks.
