Have you tried going into "control pannel" and opening "display" or "theme" and then messing with different colours, sizes and themes?

I do not mean changing the colour of the setup or anything, i want to change the style as in like a transformation. As i have seen on many sites there is downloadable themes and styles , vista users can use. I tried to download them and install them but it didn't work. I just thought somebody on here would have already heard or done this issue before but ovb not.

Hello,

In order to get the theme and styles to work you have to patch your UXTheme.dll in order to replace the themes and get them working.

Cheers,
Mak

If you have vista ultimate try using some of the dream scene content and can download some cool vidoes from here..

Also try turning the windows taskbar to Autohide, then download rocket Dock from http://rocketdock.com/ and then you can use that for all your icons, bit more stylish :)

Sorry i forgot to put you can still use Rocket dock on anyversion of Vista, and just look for some cool background images on google or use some of these ones...

(Screenshots of Some of the Dreme scene stuff.)

Also for what Makaveli213 said, try looking here http://www.softpedia...SP2-Final.shtml

I wouldnt use Theme changers myself as i had a bad expirence with them but if you get them working they are great!

Hope this helps!
