You could always take a look on deviantart. Here is mine, and Mr Grim's profiles if you wanna check them out:

sergiogarcia9 on deviantART
MrGRiM01 on deviantART

On how to apply them see this tutorial:
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes

And if you dont feel like patching system files see Zidane's tutorial: Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7

aww thanks serg i will take a look and see if anything takes my fancy i really had my heart set on the broken aero theme i thought it looked soo cool
You could contact the author of the theme and see if he has plans to port it to Windows 7...

im looking for the "broken aero theme" for windows seven i will include a picture of what im talking about as i think the theme is really cool i just cant seem to find what i want for windows seven 7600 OEM i have the counter strike source start orb i jsut want to finish it off with a custom theme

this is what im looking for (if i have made myself look silly pleas inform me

Broken Aero ver1.1 | Vista Home
Your link says you must have Windowblinds installed first to use this theme
Stardock.com - Your Edge In Software

Then go here to download the theme and install using windowblinds
http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.as...55&libid=1&c=1
but i tried this the other day any it didnt work i thought that it waas just for vista and needed to be a windows seven version (this is why i thought i was askign a noobish question)


EDIT tried again im getting this

http://i38.tinypic.com/2j35uh5.jpg
yeah its only for vista windowsblind 6 is.. if and when you have that tho and use impulse to download and install it choose to have to view the beta's of programs as well and you can download windowblinds 7 as well and that works (as far as i know)

I have it and use to but haven't tried it yet again on win7. Also if you bought blinds6 lately they free upgrade you when it's ready.
