Windows 7 Ultimate x64

What better way to start off on the forum than.. finding a thread that's half a decade old and being able to contribute to a little nostalgia.I am STILL running my original install from the first week of november 2009,as it has been nearly 6 years lol the OS is starting to show a little wear and tear! i've always had a reliable firewall installed but have none the less had to manually gut out the occasional malware,but she keeps chugging along,albeit a little slow and rough around the edges.So to all you chatters from way back in 2010 how many of you are still rocking the old grampa that is Windows 7 rtm with 3,441,792 updates installed? and the original install not a cloned image lol! I'll ride the wave as long as I can,especially in this day & age where we have to deal with metro-ish OS's(Windows 8,Windows 10) a little nostalgia might bring a smile to someone's face.

Download and Install Original System Icons?
Hello all, I acquired a computer running Windows 7 Ultimate that has a very peculiar oddity about it: various system files have been altered to give it a likeness to Mac OS X. This is beyond a simple theme modification, as the logon screen background and all system icons have been modified. ...
