It is a question of a virus that blocks access to my Windows 7 session.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and my UXTheme is patched.

Looks great but doesn't seem to work on Win7 X64. I faved anyways cause its awesome and deserves notoriety.

normally themes would have the ".theme" file in the "C:\windows\resources\Themes" folder and the ".msstyle" in the sub-folder. Does the instructions talk about putting the folder "GelXP Blue" in ""C:\windows\resources\Themes" which would mean that the ".msstyle" file would be under "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\GelXP Blue\GelXPBlue". Does this mean that the root of "C:\windows\resources\Themes" wouldn't have any files but only the folder named "GelXP Blue".

The reason for wanting to confirm is due to the fact that I am unable to to consistently get the preview as shown in the screenshot, it sometimes shows few other unknown themes and 1 messed up theme if I try applying it directly

Doesn't work. I still have blue drive bars rather than green as seen on the picture, and I have a Windows Basic theme now. Windows Basic buttons and Windows Basic... everything. Lost my Aero.

Somebody please help me. I use Uxtheme and Windows 7. Other themes like Vienna work fine.

Hmmm, when I try to use it, I get a non-Aero taskbar and only the wallpaper changes. Is it compatible with 64 bit?

Really nice :)

Btw I wanted to ask did you hide the menu in the explorer folder (the one with the "Organize" and "System properties")

I reallllly want to know how to hide/remove it :)

Is it the skin that hides it or is it you changing a setting? if its a setting would you mind telling? :D

Its in the Shellstyle.dll :)

not sure what exactly to do again but if you open my shellstyle and the default 7 shellstyle in notepad, im sure youll be able to find the difference between em :)

:( I tried looking through it but I couldnt remove the menu in any other skin.

I tried replacing huge amounts of text in some of them also.

For instance I tried to paste the line:

"<if mousefocused="false" mousewithin="false"><Element padding=\"rect(0rp,0rp,0rp,-28rp)\"/></if>\" after "<style resid="FolderBandStyle">"(in the same place as in your).

But no luck.

I replaced said text (and some other) in shellstyle.dll found in "shell/normalcolor"

Would it be possible for you to try to use another VS that someone else made and then tell me what lines you replace to make the menu hide?
