iQuatum VS for windows XP

Personal note: I was planning to make two more color variations (gray and brushed), but since I doubt that I will find enough free time in the next period for that part, I was decided to publish this style w/o those two and only in the black and white variation. I will leave that for some future updates…

So here it is people… iQuatum VS just for you! :D


1. iQuantum Visual Style for XP
2. iQuantum Styler skin (black & white)
3. iQuantum Wallpaper set (8 different desktop backgrounds)

Credits going to George Harrison and ^mrrste for more than inspirational Concave VS which I was using as reference in some aspects during my work…

Additional installation info:

To use this style you’ll need to patch your windows! To do that follows these links:

Windows XP - SP2: [link]
Windows XP - SP3: [link]


Minor update was been made and the whole style was repacked.

Corrected elements:

- Inactive window text color (white style)
- Fixed: Ati Tray Tool menu highlight color (white style)


Additional search engine style for firefox: [link]

Aj sad, objasni mi kao idiotu...mozesh recenicu i poceti s Idiote, kako da instaliram ovo..
Pokrenuo sam prvo patch, pa anrarovao tri fajla i sva tri pokrenuo. Winrar kaze da su u Themes, kad opet probam da anrarujem, ali tamo nema nicega i nemam blage veze kako da ih pokrenem. Preko properties mi ne prikazuje nista osim osnovnih windowsovih..dakle..explain me like an idiot, step by step :)

How do yo uninstall
vladimir0523's avatar
By simply removing all style files from C:\windows\resources\themes...

But why would you need that?

When i got to this i though: "maaan, nice theme but too bad it'll probably only be for windowsblinds only D:" but i gave it a shot (it being as beautiful as it is in black, and then after teh styler i agped in awe...


and i have never complimented even the best of themes before this, of course nothing is perfect though, and the only thing holding this one back is it being a bit too dark (eg. the backgrounds in folders...what i would do is makeit look sort of like vista as in sketch a shiny line through it...you know what im saying?) anyway i wrote this much to say it was amazing...oh and btw if you know of a theme which i may like PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE message me.

Well, first - thank you. I’m glad that you like my work… ;)

And I can give you few suggestions such as:

1. If you like to make this iQuantum dark style variation a bit brighter you should try to use glass2k: [link] or Blend: [link] program. It’ll give slight transparency to the windows and technically it’ll make style a bit brighter, but also the whole style will be closer to vista look, for which I think that you’ll going to like it…

2. There are several more styles which I was made and they are also dark, but they are all definitively a bit brighter than the iQuatum black variation. So you should check next links:




Enjoy :D

I found a problem with some software such as WINDOW LIVE MESSENGER and Adobe software

the WLM background for chatting can't see anything because of the black bg and adobe soft the font for tools couldn't read when using black...

There is no black style which is operational 100%! That is because of some XP limitations, but also because of fact that certain programs are using their own elements for skinning in combination with just few from the style, like per example Photoshop CS3, or ACDsee. The problem is in fact that all of them are supporting only regular “light” styles but not dark or black and that’s the reason why is impossible to make 100% operational black or dark skin.

In short, I could say that iQuatum is pretty much operational, more than 90% and that is totally acceptable if you ask me…

As for your problems, check the picture: [link]

Anyway, thanks for observation friend! ;)
