Again great theme Mark, but I wonder how long it will take before someone alter's a few things and goes 'hey, been working on a new theme what you think of it' and stick there copywrite notice all over it and / or Try to sell it!!

You are the theme maker!!

I had to remove this theme as after I contacted The skins Factory I was told that I could not post it and I can only use for personal use.

I take ownership of the entire windows folder, thats the only method that works for me. but I use a dual boot Vita/win7. I boot into Vista and "take ownership" of the Windows folder in my win7 install.

thanks for the info ,i took ownership of the windows folder but it still would not let me rename timedate .cpl so i tried it with the system 32 folder and it worked perfectly that was using the take ownership shortcut so thanks again, rep you.
