    I usually use the uxtheme patch but right now I'm using the Zune theme so it's not needed.

    I used to use StyleXP..but since I only use the visual styles I went with the uxtheme patch after my last format. I'm on XP.

    Hah! And now your Avatar is trying to give you a vaccine for it. Spread it about, yeah riiiiite. :p







    I have used WindowBlinds and the ThunderStorm theme. Theme can be found @ www.wincustomize.com and many other very good themes.

    At the moment I am using Vishal Gupta's VistaVG Black theme for XP, with the UXTheme Patcher.

    Yeah and the author of this program is also shameless and steals content from other sites. :mad:

    Look at following tutorial:

    He has copied the above tutorial from my website word by word:

    You should make a program like visual master. I would use it ... With all the good tutorials you have, something like that would be awesome.

    I agree - let's get the guy to join and then ban him lol. Above all; Visual Master is a good program. I like using it. It makes it so much easier to theme vista ...
