    Nice work.

    Side note: I've been to your site before, you bailed me out of the YM ad issue with your patch. Thanks. Welcome to OSNN.

    i would like to use your themes but i have concerns about the hacked dlls floating about - if i could get them from a trusted source (so to speak) might give them a look over :)

    ^^ You don't need to use hacked DLL files. Just use UXTheme patcher which patches your own Windows files or you can use Tuneup Utilities to apply the theme. Its absolutely safe. :)

    Yep. There are 2 versions, one for x32 icon size and the other for x48 icon size. So please switch between them from Appearance tab. :)
