You guys know of any good freeware to change the style of windows. I found some before but I cant remember what they were called.

They completely changed the look of windows (explorer shell hacks I think).

I know about ResBuilder and the like but I'm to lazy to change crap on my own :o


EDIT: Ive looked at WinBlinds... it seems like it would be really buggy and be a strain on the PC. What are your thoughts on WinBlinds and is there anything better?

If you have XP, look up PatchXP

Thanks, I was thinking about buying StyleXP, but it seems that StyleXP themes will work with PatchXP?

Guess i'll find out soon lol.

PatchXP just replaces your uxtheme.dll with a "hacked" version that will let you use .msstyles themes (which StyleXP and Windows itself use). Make sure you get the version for whatever service pack of windows you have.
