    Everytime I go to use the theme it doesn’t work. I install it in the themes folder in windows>resources. then i go to apply it in tuneup utilities and it says to amke sure that the file is a valid visual style for your OS (vista)

    I believe there is an article in life rocks on how to patch vista to use a third party theme, if not, Google “allow themes vista” and you’ll find what you need.

    To see ‘Windows 7 ultimate’ you need a patched basebrd.dll located in x:\windows\branding\basebrd\
    you have to open that file with ResHacker and replace the 1st 4 bitmaps with the ones u find @
