Okay… so you wanted to change your Xp theme and you couldn’t? You started to get nervous and you couldn’t find something to help you?
Don’t worry, ur not the only one. I wanted to change my xp theme some time ago and I couldn’t do it properly. The icons and wallpaper changed but the theme got fucked-up. So I found myself looking for a solution.
I found this useful xp patcher that allows me now to install and use other xp themes.
You can get it from here: UXTheme Muti-Patcher
When you install this, you’ll see a popped-up window asking you to insert CD. Ignore that and continue with rebooting. After that, again you’ll be asked to locate the Cd. Just cancel that and install a new theme. Now it should work :D.
