Thanks to Lumen-Melano here [link] i can now present to you the solution to the MS Office bug some people encountered. Here's what Lumen-Melano wrote:

Right click anywhere on the desktop and click personalise.
Make sure you have selected one of the Static themes as your current theme.
Click on "Window Color" at the buttom of the window.
Then click "Advanced appearance settings".
Then on the new window find 3D Objects in the dropdown menu under "Item:"
Then just make sure that both "Color 1" and "Color" are white.
Click OK and Save Changes and you should be done.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Inside:

// Static Visual Style + Static Polished Visual Style
// explorerframe.dll (64x and 32x)
// Preview
// readme with installation instructions

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

stuff in the preview:

I wish there was an easy way to edit themes without downloading tools and everything.
Because my Virus Scanner tells me that this tool I have to download is a virus :(

Hey why is the strip at the top of the windows explorer window gone? You know, the one that has the "organise" button.

You can re-add it by replacing the shellstyle.dll in your
themes\static\Shell\NormalColor-folder

Great skin!

I read that u have upgraded to win 8 and no longer support this skin. But I have to ask!

The green "info bar" in explorer is way to distracting. Would rather have a light grey color. Is this hard to change? I'm using the static polished theme.

DiraVersal Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013
I have checked around a bit, and I think I can change the color myself if you just give me the correct number for the area :) Do you happen to know what number img I'm after?

Could you please add a color variant to your theme with the standard color highlights? This is the only square theme that doesn't have a corner glitch! Thanks!

Can you tell me the importance of changing the ExplorerFrame.dll? And I think there's something wrong with the scrollbar. If the size of the scrollbar exceeds 11, the theme desplays the classic scrollbar along with the theme's scrollbar.

snipes2 Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Student General Artist
the explorerframe is responsible for the back and forward buttons in the explorer windows. You will have to change your windows settings to 100% that should do the trick. I am not supporting this theme anymore since i'm using windows 8 now.

I installed the theme using the installer and everything went smoothly, but I don't know how to switch the theme to Static Polished. Right now, it's just using the Static regular theme. I don't know where it installed anything except in the resources/themes folder, which I don't know how to do anything with. Any help would be appreciated.

I'm not responsible for the istaller, since another Deviant did that.
Anyway, you can try to download the file here and install it manually.
It really isn't that complicated ;)

loved it, but I just am not the kind of person that can stand super contrasty colors in such a large dose. I'd love to see a simpler version of this with small accents of color. But anyway, I loved the big close/min/ect buttons, the opacity of the window frames and the overall clean metro feel.

I love this theme apart from the ok (normal button in the screenshot above) button colours, the cancel one is a lovely blue, the ok button is some sort of nasty gradient.

It looks as though the button colours can be changed from the screenshots. Is this possible?

Thanks,

Sam.

ive been usining this theme for a vey long time and i love it. there one severe problem though that is making me want to get rid of it. sometimes when applications like Run or something that ask me to browse a file i cant. the browse box comes up but nothing else will. also now when i download things from my browser and i try to find things straight from the downloads page of my browser it give me a class not registered error. do yo u have any clue how to fix this
Reply
:iconsnipes2:
snipes2 Featured By Owner May 7, 2012  Student General Artist
Sure! It's connected to the explorerframe.dll or replacing dlls in general...
Take a look here, i once had the same problem and asked for help: [link]
The solution is in the comments, try the sfc/scannow command:
"start > run > cmd > type sfc /scannow and let it scan, it will fix all the files that are incorrect. However once it's done you will have to run the uxtheme patcher again."

I'm glad you like it!
