I was wondering about this patch. If this patch renames the original uxtheme dlls to uxtheme.bak, then when you run a temp file cleaner it would be deleted, as most temp file cleaners are set by default to delete .bak file extentions.
Maybe it would be a good idea to backup your original uxtheme.dll just in case. Wouldn't you say?
Windows File Protection continually reports of replaced files and requests the service pack 1 files to correct the issue. How do I stop it from asking to replace the files? Do I have to hack the registry to turn WFP off or is there a simpler way?
You don't replace any files. Have you downloaded a theme from theme.org? That's the first place to start. You want a 'visual style'. When you get that let us know. btw Make sure you have no other theme manager installed before applying the patch.
yeah i have a theme file , i have the one called 10.28.02 plex xp v0.7 from this site its the longhorn theme i installed the patcher from this site and i got the WFP error so i jsut clicked reboot from the program , i dont know if its worked or not , and i dont have anyother theme programs on the pc.
the WFP error came from installing the patcher program,
iam not worried about the icons at the moment as iam sure a new theme like this one will inclued them so ppl dont have to play hunt the icon in the shell files.
thanks for the help i now have that longhorn look to my pc.
