Black basic theme/change windows 7 basic to black?

Hi

I wanted to ask if there's a way to change the colors in the basic theme to black.

I noticed that there's a thread which explains how to change the taskbar color (in basic) to black, but I want to change the taskbar color, window color et all.

Please let me know if there's a way to achieve this, or if you have come across any custom dark themes which look that way.

Have good info, will rep

Regards
makubex

This guy has made a few nice themes for Windows 7 you might want to check out, I think they were all made for build 7100 x86 but may also work on others, I haven't tried them.
