This is a theme I have been working on for a few months now. I started working on it because of my distaste for the original Windows theme and the hopelessness in finding a theme I really could adopt.
It is not perfect but I am not sure if I want to spend too much time on it any more, and I think I have done an OK job so far.Instructions:
-First of all you need a patched system to use this theme but I guess you knew that already, it's easy to do, but I included the Universal Theme Patcher.
-Then if you haven't already, install the, also included, Theme Resource Changer
-Copy content of the "Theme" folder from the archive in C:\Windows\Resources\Theme
-If you don't have it, install the Droid Sans font that you can find in the "Font" folder
-Double-click on the VOID.theme file. It will apply the theme.Program Icons
: I mostly made the ones that I use, but feel free to make your own using the included PSD and 7Conifier. The font I used is a Monospaced called Targa MS: [link]System icons
: So far I can only provide the .ico files that you can replace yourself in imageres.dll or use IconPackager (this software is a pile of crap though). If I have time I will make a custom imageres.dll to come with the package.
Everything looks better if you remove shadow and animations
. Go to Start menu -> right click on computer -> proprieties -> advanced settings -> performance and untick shadows and animations.
I suggest you also use the Windows standard cursors
. Go to Personnalize -> Change your mouse pointers, then choose "Windows Standard". If you don't have it click on "Windows Standard Large", then "None". They'll go back to Normal size.
I might create a logon screen for it as well...
