UPDATE: New app has been coded from scratch and contains many improvements



Download Link



Windows 7+ Theme Installer is a freeware from door2windows which lets you easily install new 3rd party themes, apply & delete existing themes in Windows 7, Windows 8 & Windows 8.1.

How To Use:


Run the app. On the first run, it will ask if you want to patch the UXTheme files. Patching is required if you want to use 3rd party themes. If you haven't already patched the files (or if you are not sure), click Yes. After some time Windows will automatically log off indicating the patching has been done. Login and run the app again.

To install new themes:
  1. Click the ... button after .theme and browse for the theme file.
  2. If the theme you want to install comes with replaceable system files, click the ... button after the name of the system files and browse for the system file. In Windows 7, instead of TwinUI.dll, options to change Explorer.exe, ExplorerFrame.dll and OobeFldr.dll are available. The app will automatically make sure that the system file which you choose is of the correct Windows version and architecture.
  3. After you have selected the .theme file and the system files that you want to replace, click Install Theme & System Files.
  4. Windows Explorer will automatically restart and the theme and system files will be installed. Select the new theme in the list and click Apply Theme to apply the theme.
To restore the default system files just click Restore Default System Files.

To apply/delete existing themes, select any theme in the Installed Themes list and click Apply Theme/Delete Theme.

It'll show up when you're using Windows 7. Newer Windows version don't use it iirc.

I prefer the Uxstyle. It's much safer. It doesn't patch anything.

See you still didn't answer the question man you just redirect like you've done with every other post where someone said something about your malware!... And it is a trojan and one's a pup you dont have any option i never ran anything I contained the .jse to see what it would do and bang still infects me. The FILE IS NOT CLEAN AND YOU PROPAGATE MALWARE UNDER THE GUISE OF WINDOWS MODS!
gyazo.com/1c094827c86923996a14…

Ok after going through netstat on the localized pc which is kept inside of a dedeicated sophos firewall. After looking at all the connections and looking at services I've noticed several new ones that are all foreign connections and should not be there: Result of your trojan which actually is impossibly to find until the script you made here runs. Which is when it gets flagged. I have actually submitted your script to a real malware gnoming  outfit called invincea we will see what its really doing... My friend works there so you hiding your malware will soon come to an end!

See the difference between me an other users I read the comments and I never ran this software I never opened it I never did anything I just let it sit for about 3 minutes before i contained it. Still got infected!

So yeah deviantart used  to say be careful there be monsters out there was sort of a a joke when you left the site! Well now there is a monster here spreading malware all over the place I dont care what software you write spreading malware is not acceptable and shouldn't be acceptable on this site.

What happened to the deviantart moderators...

Im no fool i've been messing around writing and dealing with malware for many many years and I think I know  how this particular piece of malware works: the pup auto drops itself then tries to downloads a trojan dropper this is even if you didnt run it mind you! I downloaded nothing else but this so no other way of being infected except for this! Just to clear that up so you cant claim i got it some other way... Just not possible!

And I dont believe you at all about "how you sent your decompiled code to av companies" thats a lie along with the rest of the crap you say... You respond without responding gotta love it oh goto my website infect yourself with more malware...

The sad part is if your smart enough to lace in pups and trojans your smart enough to write a non in the wild script that av's and malware protection wont catch!

PEOPLE SHOULD NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING FROM THIS GUY IF YOU ASK ME... OH GIVE PEOPLE TROJANS AND PUPS OR PAY 5$ ARE YOU SERIOUS?  ID JUST RATHER PAY THE 5$ FUNNY PART KISHAN I DONT TRUST YOU AT ALL THE 5$ PACK: is probably infected to!


It would later go on to crash out explorer.exe several times on msvcr90.dll is the fault modules name. And I believe I'm still infected by whatever nasty's come with your scripts! Ill be nuking windows in T minus 20 minutes!

SAD PART IS DEVIANTART USED TO BE SOMETHING SPECIAL!

YOU SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE DEVIANTART MODERATORS AS A PROPAGATOR OF MALWARE REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU SAY I CAN PROVE IT IS IS MALWARE AND IT AUTODROPS ITSELF!

I am sorry, that is not easy to do. You will have to get the source of both the themes and replace just the taskbar resources.
