How To
You'll need your system patched with UXThemePatcher

UltraUXThemePatcher:
www.syssel.net/hoefs/software_…

You'll also need 'StartIsBack' (check the 'SIB Settings' screenshots included in the zip, for theme specific settings in StartIsBack), to apply the start menu
& taskbar style as well as 'OldNewExplorer' for windows explorer to look exactly like it is in the screenshot. 
Installation:
a.Extract the contents of the 'Theme' folder & copy them to: 
C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
 
b.From Personalization, select & apply the theme.

Optional:
Aero Glass is recommended with this theme.

Link to Aero Glass with GUI for RS2-RS4 versions:
(Download the version that is relevant to your OS)
www.virtualcustoms.net/showthr…

Aero Glass for RS5 1809:
virtualcustoms.net/showthread.…

Download the zip from the link above & extract the DWMGlass.dll.
Download & run the RS4 installer & complete the installation.
A compatibility error message will pop up, close it.
Replace the DWMGlass.dll inside the Aero Glass installation folder with the one you downloaded and you're done

Extras:

Stygian Logon/Lockscreens in 1920x1080 & 2560x1440 resolutions.

Enjoy.

This is truly really cool! Can you apply transparency effects to this so is like you're looking at a solid-framed holographic window?

Inside the frames.

my original idea for this theme was to have transparency  in the frames for better aero effects.. but when i was making the theme i found the heavy use of shadows in the frames make the aero or transparency look like utter s@#t!!! hence i refrained from any kind of transparent elements in the frames themselves.
