about installation of themes


Step 1: Download Windows Vista UxTheme patch.
How to install
1. Login as a user with Administrative privileges -or- have Administrative credentials ready (check under the keyboard for a slip of paper).
2. Navigate to %systemroot%\System32
3. Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties.
4. Take ownership of the file and close dialogs.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll
6. Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties.
7. Give yourself (or group) Full Control permissions and close dialogs.
8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll.
9. Rename uxtheme.dll to uxtheme.old.
10. Rename themeui.dll to themeui.old.
11. Rename shsvcs.dll to shsvcs.old.
12. Copy patched files into %systemroot%\System32
13. Reboot

Step 1b: If you find the above too intimidating, download VistaGlazz and just run it, it automates the whole patching process so you don’t have to worry about it!

Step 2: Download a Windows Vista Visual Style from a free Windows Vista Themes gallery, and copy the theme to Windows/Resources/Themes folder.
Step 3: Right click on desktop and click on Personalize. From the page that pops up, click on Theme and choose your newly installed theme!

theme of xp and vista operating system


To download themes for XP and vista, you'll need a few things.

Firefox Web Browser - http://getfirefox.com/
Greasemonkey Firefox Addon - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748
ThemeXP.org Link Rewriter - http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/5150
UXTheme.dll Patcher - http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=140707
WinRAR - http://rarsoft.com/

Install them in that order. Once they're installed (you probably want to restart), visit http://themexp.org and download a visual style (theme). Extract it to c:\windows\resources\themes and it should show up when you right click on the desktop and go to properties.

StyleXP helps this process a bit (you won't need to install WinRAR or the UXTheme patcher). It does, however, cost money.
