    Style XP... as it simply lets you use **third party** Visual Styles (.MSSTYLES Files).... also LogonUI and NTOSKERNEL replacements.. and trasparency to Windows UI also...

    2.16 Version just realed b4 few days...

    All other comes with bling blang... so I don't like anything except StyleXP....

    Style XP is not **FREE**... you can also get WindowsX's UXTheme.DLL Patcher to patch Windows to support **third party** Visual Styles... [/b]

    Look up... up in da sky... see me yet? Nah... Use
    Doubtlessly http://www.astonshell.com/ (ASTON) for best looks with minimum strain/stress 4 the computer. But needs lot of adjustments for ur perfect desktop.

    Go 4 StyleXP or Talisman... otherwise.

    BUT... THEY R ALL SHAREWARE.

    Thanks guys.
    I finally got the right combination.I am using WindowBlinds for the themes as
    its range of themes is quite large and good. I am using StyleXP for changing my boot screen and logon screen.Maybe I will use it to change the visual styles once I come across a good theme.

    ya man .. Indyan ..
    you pointed it right .. StyleXP isnt actually a shell replacement ..
    its just like skinning windows .. nothing else ..

    Aston is truly a shell replacement ..
    ie, if you dont have a folder open, you can see that there wont be any explorer.exe running !

    What I ever meant was any software which would change the default XP look, be it a skinning utility or a shell replacement
