Got some requests to make a VS which matches with my other Windows8/XP deviations. This is my first try to make a VS, so don't be to harsh with your critics.:) XP only.
This VS is based on the very popular SevenVGRTM themefav.me/d27itxi by :iconvishal-gupta: with permission from the author. Thank you for the allowance.:handshake:
The file contains 2 VS. One with and one without startbutton. Simply a question of taste.
Made for Windows XP only.

:new: Featured on AskVGwww.askvg.com/download-windows…
Read the great article and learn how to use this stuff.:D
:new: Totally redone september 1. Old version is still included in the download. Please have a closer look at the tutorial, if you wanna use the advanced version.
All screenshots taken from my XP SP3 system.:)

This VS will be part of my upcoming transformation pack. Preview herepeterrollar.deviantart.com/art…

Give it a try.:D

:new: Totally redone september2
New borders
Modified quickstartbuttons
New taskbar
Windows8 like statusbar
Modified taskbarbuttons

Hi Peter!!! I Love  this one. Every time that i searching something for deskmoding here i always end looking and downloading some of your work. So good for you!!! Beer before Liquor; will get you sicker

And just in case: some suggestions: :idea:
  1. Normal taskbar versions.
  2. A more darkish blue version.
  3. A darksih grey version
  4. Start menus withou withe areas.
  5. Buttons states like this one has United Colors (by Blurokr)
Anyway... ...i :+fav: this one as it is, couse it deserve.
See'ya and CHAU!!! from Flag of Argentina.

I have supported XP all the time, but meanwhile it is almost dead. I think there isn't anymore much interest for this kind of stuff. :(
I know the theme you mentioned, it is in my favourites, and i still like it. One of the best XP themes around DA.
Thank you for your nice comment.:handshake:

mmmm yeah! you're right! The "Long live" to our lovely and esitating XP has been down. And more fast as the time go. Unfortunately i still using XP for hardware reasons and i think couse i don't know how to modify themes, plus i just downloading themes... i think that i hadn't enjoy my XP in the way that i wish. :( For that reason is that i the other day i put to some order in my themes folder and end once time again to come here to end downloading a couple of themes more.

Anyway i think that everybody of us have a security copy of XP with a few or lot deskmodding stuff. And i want ...some day... finishing my personal unnateted copy of XP with the perfect stuff.

Well, sorry for boring you. Have a nice day.
