How to create your own custom Windows 7 theme?

As above,how would i go about it and what software do i need?
I have photoshop and restorator but is this all i need,and if so where are the files i need to edit?
I had a quick look in windows/resources/themes/aero to see if i could modify it but it didnt pick up any available files.

Any help would be appreciated
