OK, I edited your pic, and changed and cleaned it up. I also made it into a BMP already, so you can just use is for your start orb.

And with xp I use to use 1 that i can't remember the name of but it let me use a terminator 3 theme which made some excellent changes to my look...Ever since I used it with xp I was interested in changeing my vista, and now with windows 7 I wwoudl liek to do the same.. so agian it would be great to find out if anyone has a themepack that will change all of that and everythign and if I need to swap out dll files... I appriciate the time for any answers that are givin, and anytime that anyone puts into this slight request. Thank you very much...

A new interested windows 7 user.... I am hoping to learn as much as possible with this OS since it seems to run pretty smooth and good so far. Thank you
Dejavue,

Firstly download and run Patch from (Click Here) for.dll.

As for dark theme, what verison of W7 are you running and is it x86 or x64?

I have two dark themes, but one is good for 7100 and the another 7600, but one is only good for x86, both are good for x64

Here is a peak,

Here you go, all are W7 ready, there is one that can not be done because it is longer than the template required.

You will find it here mate,
:: ThaImpact VS - 7 Version :: by ~DjabyTown on deviantART

and here is the Download



Safeguard:
If you follow the process going forward correctly you will not use system restore or the backup, But PLEASE BACKUP NOW and Update System Restore
BETTER TO SAFE THAN SORRY, it would help if you had a copy of your operating system on a disc, because if you need to use system restore or your backup, you can only access it from your disc.

How to Take ownership
On each file within your system before replace with new ones you will need to take ownership, Right click\Properties\Security Tab\Advanced Button\Owner Tab\Edit Button\high-lite administrators\ apply, you have just taken owner ship, now high-lite user name and apply, just in case.

How To Load Theme
1) load this first,
http://uxstyle.com/builds/UxStyle_Core_jul13_bits.zip, with this you do not need to worry about the folder name Uxtheme which contains, themeservice.dll, themeui.dll and uxtheme.dll.

2)copy the following files into c:\Windows\System32, ExplorerFrame.dll and Shell32.dll You must take ownership of exciting file before you can do this.

3)copy the following file into c:\Windows, Explorer.exe You must take ownership of exciting file before you can do this.

4)copy the following folder and files into c:\Windows\Resource\Theme,Thaimpact folder and thaimpact.theme file.

5) Reboot

6)If you can not see Thaimpact in personalise , go into c:\Windows\Resource\Theme and double click thaimpact.theme, then it will start working.

hope this helps

Enjoy

Lets just work on the patch first,

Did you create a restore point, if so, restore now, once you have done that, run patch again, DO Not Forget to Reboot.

Can you tell me which theme you are trying to Run.

Also tell me what version you are running is it 7600 RTM x86 which is 32 bit
