Default Windows themes

hey fellow techies. I have never used windows themes. Even with windows xp after every re install I just change to its silver theme and never touch it. When ever I see a desktop screen shot on the forums someone is always using a cool theme. I have tried windows blinds, and another one but they all cost a bit much imo and I would think there would be good, free, virus free, ones out there. Let me know whats the norm as far as this goes. thanks.

For tha horde..

Default Re: Windows themes

I am basically the same; just switch with color schemes, although I do sometimes use the Longhorn theme:

Default Re: Windows themes

Theres a really cool program... Aston Shells... do a search for it. Its a bit confusing on the organization, but it ends up looking awesome. its only a one week trial though.... used to be free. costs 20 bucks I think. But theres tons of custom themes people make and its all 100 percent customizable.
