Default XP Theme

Can anybody tell me where I can get a nice theme for XP for free.

I've seen some that have black taskbars and look kinda rounded and shiny (if that makes sense!) on some of the pictures uploaded here and would like to get that myself.

I don't want any spyware or ad supported stuff though.

I've googled for the last half an hour but they all seem to be ad supported.

Thanks

You mean like this:



You can get that for free from http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop...or-WinXP.shtml

Thanks Lac3y,

That's the one, but it's blue and I really want it in black. I can't seem to be able to change the colours in the display properties.
