//UPDATE 27.02.2012: Added two new Substyles!
note that the new Visual Styles are only compatible with
> large taskbar icons
> allways group
> bottom taskbar

//UPDATE 25.01.2012:
Fixed the bug responsible for the disappearing of some controls.

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


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 ~MustBeResult and you can find it here: [link]
To change the start button please use this tool: [link]

In the preview i also used a custom shell32.dll. You can find it here: [link]

To get firefox working without the common visual bug where the frames of the sidebar are messed up use tis useful addon: [link]

so beautiful. congratulations on being a wonderful designer. i just have one request.
for the alien theme 1, it's perfect in every way except i just really wish the taskbar was transparent like the window stuff. it matches every other criterium and if the taskbar was the same as the window bar then that would be everything i could ever want in a theme. can you maybe make that happen please? you're great
