Hi Markokk888,

This theme changes the details to a dark colour.

What software are you using to customize the theme?

The images are in a .msstyles, you would need to find a Vista .msstyles so the image could be extracted from it and then use either resource hacker (free) or Windows Style Builder (not free) to import the image back in a Windows 7 .msstyles.
