    I downloaded the "AA" theme, and I unzipped it, but when I click on "AA WinFlag.msstylesm," it doesn't do any thing other than bring me to display properities. What do I do?

    Rename it to ".msstyles" -- without the "m".

    First of all, I downloaded the visual style from the link above and the files are all named correctly.

    If you are unable to apply the visual style then you need to ask yourself, "Did I patch UXTheme.dll?" If the answer is no then you need to run this file and follow the instructions. Without doing so you will be unable to use third party visual styles or themes.

    if you have patched, u might need to repatch, which would be patch, restart, patch again..

    Run the patch, follow the on screen instructions, wait for Windows System File Protection to popup, cancel it, yes, click OK, reboot.

    That service is required for use of visual styles/themes. You don't need it enabled if you are using Windows Classic.

    I got it on, but does anybody know any icons that would match this theme in orange?

    FYI - IMG tags don't work for pictures located on your machine.

    Try using a free imagehost, such as www.imageshack.us, or add the file as an attachment here at OSNN.
