    I am new to themes so i need some help please.
    I managed to get samarize up and running (see attachment) with help from reading people's posts. What i need now is to get Explorer themed. I downloaded the patch from this site but i cant find any themes on the net. :(
    Where are they? Or is it possible to get a free ware program to make my own?

    thx

    OK. What you need is called a visual style. Go here & download one. Once in a folder open it & click the msstyles file. That will bring up system properties where you can then select the wallpaper & apply the style. If it is a self installer just click & away it goes.

    Use StyleBuilder from tgtsoft.com to make your own theme.
    It's a shareware but you have 30 days free trial.

    i am not using samorize any more cause it is not quite what i wanted, although i think it is a good program. I am using a program called SysMetrix.
    Ths XP skin is called Caution , with the colour baloo.
    And finally i am using yzdock which is absolutley wicked.

    I have attached the skin cause i cant remember the link to it :( the rest is easily found on the net.

    No problem :)

    I spent about 20 of the last 36 hours getting it right, and have even customised some of my own icons for it.

    Links to some of the pages i ended up on:
    1,2,3 (would put url but page is to short :))
