After patch, restart the computer to take effect.

2. Select the theme according to where you place your superbar.

3.I provided a software in the RAR Tbariconblanker [link]
Run this software to use my theme how its meant to be used

Then restart to make sure everything works properly.

5. Take ownership of explorerframe.dll in System32 folder and copy the appropreiate explorerframe.dll replacing the original!. Make sure to make a backup of the original in case of instability. (i dont know how to take permission manually, but i search for a software on google)

Is this likely to ever get ported to a Windows 8.1 Visual Style?

Used this religiously on my old Windows 7 laptop - flawless work!

Also, am I right in thinking this style uses the Segoe UI font?

i didnt release these icons. And i didnt use them outside of this theme so i deleted them when i made new ones based on metro design. You can download those from my page.

I really like this. Yet I'm wondering if you're using a custom theme for Firefox to make it more fitted for your theme?

Well, I guess I spoke out of place last year. I still use this as my default, although it is becoming increasingly more difficult. If only I could figure out how to add back transparency in place of the white; and everything would be perfect. With the latest version of Chrome, this isn't a huge problem anymore. With the current theme of Firefox, it's a minor problem. With Firefox's incoming Australis (curvy tabs) update, the white over aero practically breaks the UI of Firefox all together.

Is there anyone officially, or unofficially who could help me implement transparency as seen in the authors other work? It seems as if the white was just put in as a place holder as this was a rushed concept, but with no bugs other than this; it's perfect!

I would be forever grateful for any help. Katharos this is the first theme I have found attractive for Windows 7, period. Windows 8 is going to make things very difficult for me even more. I'd really like to be able to enjoy my personalization for just a bit longer. Getting this theme fixed, would allow me to do just that.

Thank you!
