    Is there any way to install visual styles without stylexp, because I tried to uninstall stylexp (even deleted the registry keys) and d/l a new one, and it still said my evaluation was up.. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I did exactly what it said, and it's still won't let me install visual styles. They only appear as old skool widows 98 blocky style... Can anyone hook me up with the old freeware version of StyleXP?

    If you still got problems, download the already patched dll from my site here: http://www.ia-stud.hiof.no/~andreasp/uxtheme.dll
    To install it; boot up XP in safe-mode (press F8 after BIOS check on startup and choose boot up in safe mode from the list) go to your Windows/System32 folder, rename your uxtheme.dll to uxtheme.bak and copy the uxtheme.dll you downloaded from me in this folder instead!

    the one at the top is the first stylexp that came out. it just patch the dll so u can use other themes. atleast that one wont stop working after 30 days. if i remember correctly stylexp was free up to beta 3.
