The package includes two Visual Styles for Windows 7
and custom images to change the explorerframe.dll

Basic Support is enabled. Now with a custom basic.theme file.


For installation instructions read this: [link]

To change the explorerframe I suggest you to use this wonderful tool: [link]

The start button is made by =kiko11 and you can find it here: [link]
To change the start button please use this tool: [link]

Hey there, how's it going? So nice to hear from you!
I really wanted to get started with the Windows 8 stuff...
The i decided to wait for windows 8.1 to come out, but i just didn't manage to even install it.
For now i really need a working and well functioning computer for university and it takes so much time 
to get things sorted out and everything properly running. 
I miss customizing a lot, but i don't know when i'll be able to start again.

i wish you made the exploreframe file so we can let third party software off
Okay, i cant understand how to install this.
I dont understand this installation guide abow.

Can someone tell me how to do this and tell me what i need?

I REALLY REALLY want this theme, i like it so much!

Please help!
