well in xp, just dclick and apply and your vstyle applied. BUT in vista, it doesn't support it ! It only uses .theme files.... anybody came up with a solution to this ? cuz i don't want to slow perf. while working in Vista, and the aero is kinda blunt to me (sry ms)....and the classic ones don't match the 'high standards of the os'. any solutions except windowblinds ?
