Need some more Anthracite?:-)
So, look there:-)

There are a lot...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Update: Vista Anthracite v 1.31 Ultra Lite has been updated.

It's now possible to select two different Logon Screens.

Install the better one!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
According to user's suggestions there is a Ultra Lite version of the Vista Anthracite Pack Lite v1.31 (available here:[link]).

There are only a Visual Style and Logon Screen included in this pack, so if you prefer a third party icon manager (like Icon Packager or so on), this one is for you.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
All the images used in the logon sample were used in an alphabetical order and are copyrighted by their respectable owners.

How about some more detailed description? A have installed this in my Windows 7, and all my visual settings have been reset to Windows XP Classic. So much troubles, i hate you, author.

If anyone has problems installing this for SP3 (like i did) make sure you go out and grab UXtender 1.3 after you have installed the pack and if it fails use this patch (UXtender) re-start and you should be golden :D

WARNING: Norton (Symantec Corp.) detects this file as being infected with Hacktool.WFPOff & Adware.Gen
Just Because We’re Paranoids Doesn’t Mean that Big Brother is Not Watching Us:-)
A kind of joke:-)

What about viruses, it's common that some virus protection software is a bit paranoid about such utilities like Vista Anthracite Pack. Pay your attention, that this tool modifies a lot of system files (changing icons, BMPs, AVIs, etc), so it can seem suspicious for a virus protection software.

What to do in that situation?
I can recommend the virus total site, it isn't a 100% warranty for sure (who can give that?) but I want to believe, that it's the most comprehensive service for the moment.

Just for example, look here:
The current result is 16/41 39.02%, or (it will be better), upload your own copy of a file and re-analyze it again.

Pay your attention, that most of anti virus software reports about WFPDisabler, for sure, it is here,
no ways to change icons, pictures, etc, without turning WFP off.

Hope, its help,
yours Nekh,
regards.
Hi, all, and thank you so much for all comments, suggestions, notes you wrote here:-)

I also want to ask you, there is a minor update for the pack, nothing serious, just a corrected theme patcher for Windows XP SP3, and just a few other style improvenments.

What do you think, is it still interesting to publish it here, as long as Windows 7 was released?

Do some of you still need a Windows XP transformation pack?

Please, feel free to let us know, what do you think about?

Yours Nekh.
NSIS error, plz update the installer as it seems corrupted.

I thought you'd be interested to know that site advisor found this to be a problem: [link]
Hi Nekh-Art-Studio!
I met a problem when I uninstalled ur package. Everything came back like before installation but the logon theme. It didn't come to original theme of xp. How can I solve this problem?
Thanks for ur package, anyway. It's great!

Hi, I'm using Trojan Remover, the strange thing is my Nod32 doesn't detect the worm, but the Trojan Remover does. I don't know what's going on. I think someone else commented on detecting a trojan as well, it's on the first page, I'll just copy and paste here.

Bitdefender detects virus: Trojan Wfpdis.A ...but then Bitdefender detects a trojan in the crystal xp brico pack too.

I only say Bitdefender detects a Trojan. Some files are not liked by Bitdefender. I would virus scan or ask a friend to virus scan the download. Again, it may just be Bitdefender being very sensitive. ;)

Translate from [link]

Je dis seulement que Bitdefender détecte un Trojan. Quelques dossiers ne sont pas aimés par Bitdefender. Je balayage de virus ou demander à un ami au balayage de virus le téléchargement. Encore, ce peut juste être Bitdefender étant très sensible. ;)
Personally, I much more believe the NOD32 than such Trojan Remover, etc, etc, etc.
Sure, no one now can 100% guaranty that any stuff is clean. As for me, the fact that pretty much users downloaded it well without such problems is a good assurance.

why is there a worm detected in your software? The worm is called IM-Worm.Sohanad, which is located in the C:\Windows\ApplyTheme.exe

I don't know what's going on lol, but I think I should let the downloaders know that =x. anyways, great work though, i really like the theme and stuff, minus the worm though...
Hi, Sonny-Chan, thank you for the report. Looks like you are the first of 44,818 downloaders (at the moment) who've detected a worm in the pack.
So, it seems that that worm was already infected your computer or so on.
BTW, what kind of antivirus software are you using?

Anyway, for all who downloaded the pack, pay your attention for viruses, as usual should do.
And please, all of you who downloaded and installed the pack recently, please let us know, are there any problems with the pack or not.
I installed the pack and all is alright except that my task bar goes to the windows classic mode, have no idea how to skin it with the black task bar, please help


btw when i go to properties on the task bar there i can see the black task bar that i wish would appear instead of the windows classic bar

oh and this is a great looking skin i must add
For all of you who has trouble with SP3,
just Google for Uxtheme Multi-patcher 6.0 (there are a lot of download links), run it, patch the uxtheme.dll, restart and all should work again.
how about making the theme similar to windows media player 11 ..... look.......
[link=[link]



take a look at the image..........
Thank you for the link, a nice one. As for me, I don't think that it's so useful to make new XP themes now. Real Vista ones will be more interesting, what do you all think about? Is it worth enough to release a theme for Vista?
vista requires a lot of system resources....

i think xp is better...many still use xp....
and ur theme does not make xp slower....
speed like same as the original xp blue theme....

vista theme would be perfect.... but don't forgot the xp users.......

any idea from the image???
Agree, Vista likes much more memory than XP,
personally I'm still using XP at work and Vista at home with almost equal comps.
Both of them is pretty comfortable for me.

That about the image, I generally like such style, but prefer more thin windows border and buttons. It's my main aim to redesign an Aero stuff, making it more thin and glare.
