    Operating System:
    Windows 7 & Opensuse 12.1
    ~!Note: Make a restore point before trying this that way if something goes wrong you can easily go back.!~

    So are you bored of that same boring Windows 7 Style? Would you like something different? If you said,"yes" to both of those questions keep reading. If you said no to either you can stop reading here .

    Okay first you will need three tools. The UXthemepatcher, The style you want to install, and your brain .

    Here is the download for the patcher -

    32bit - http://www.windows7download.com/win7-universal-theme-patcher/mnefyyoo.html

    64bit - http://www.x64bitdownload.com/download/t-64-bit-universal-theme-patcher-download-geeyljbo.html

    Now after downloading open it up.

    Click the patch all option and just click cancel on

    Any error message windows throws at you,click cancel and/or no.

    It just notifying you that you are using a modified version of the uxtheme dll and thinks you need the original.

    I promise this is not going to infect you with any malware.

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

    So after running the patch restart the machine.

    Now for the style. You can find windows 7 styles here - http://browse.deviantart.com/customization/skins/windows7/visualstyle/?order=9

    Pick you a style and download it. Then extract the zip.

    Now it will either have an automatic installer or the files you have to manually move.

    If you have a installer just run it it is like any other program install.

    If you have a package with just the theme files. Put them in the C:\windows\resources\themes.

    Now you have style installed.

    All you need to do now is change to the theme.

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

    To change to your new theme open up control panel.

    From there choose "Appearance and Personalization" .

    Now choose Personalization

    Now from there click theme and you can choose from some preinstalled themes and the style you installed.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I hope this helped some of you.
