I'm sick of the green start button in Win XP. Especially with the silver color scheme. I was thinking a dark red would look good, or even a matching silver. Is there a way to do it?

Thats cool but I generally like to keep a clean system without loading too much junk onto it. how much extra memory do the themes eat up?

Hmmm I downloaded the theme but I dont get the flashy taskbar. All I get is the wallpaper. The taskbar, the tittlebars and the scrollbars all revert to ugly Classic windows style. How do I fix that?
 

eh?

By the way, the uxtheme.dll thing that is available from the website so you don't have to install all that crap is not SP1 compatible is it? It sure won't work on mine and I have no desire to install that crapware (I've already got too much running at start up).

Hey I downloaded Samurize and its pretty wicked!!!
baqai I was wondering where you got that layout, I can't find it on the Samurize site... Did you make it yourself? If so could you post it on here? Im sure a lot of people would love that. If you can't host it somewhere e-mail it to me ([email protected]) and I'll do it for you.
