    Hello,

    Well I have Windows XP and I am looking to download different themes online, I know there are the silver and green style them already but I am wanting something different.

    I have tried download software to use a theme and all that good stuff but I always end up wasting my time and it is now time to ask for help.
    What is a good website for themes, how to I go about installing a theme I find on that website in detail if possible. I am not stupid so it doesn't have to be detail-detail. You know what I mean.

    Thanks for any help.
    Shelby,

    ok so basically you need UX theme patcher.
    Note that version for SP2 won't work for SP3, so check the SP your OS has.

    well that's it ;)

    some themes LINK

    but I usually shop for mine on DeviantArt

    Actually there are several themes that are MS certified such that you don't need a patcher to use them.

    Royale Noir
    Royale
    Zune
    Windows Embedded

    Read the associated articles to see if they are what you want. The DL links are on the pages.

    If you are looking for things to make your os less dull, google objectdock. Its free (or the base version is at least).
