UAC must be turned off.
After patch, restart the computer to take effect.

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

3. Extract contents (Win7-Shine 2.0.theme & Win7-Shine 2.0 folder) into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
and double-click on Win7-Shine 2.0.theme
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)

6. Restart computer and you are done :)

one of the commenters said: "absolutely fantastic, i've tried a LOT of themes and this is the only one i've stuck with; in my opinion this is easily the best Windows 7 theme on deviantART." ..and many other commenters have agreed on that.

Hi all

This theme is beautifull and i like it very much but there is one thing that is really "boring" for me: the colours of the bars (hdd, progresses bars, etc).

So i modified them with the Windows Aero original ones. If you want this theme with the "corrected" colours (if you don't like greys one ;) ), here is where to download it. I modified the colours only for "Bottom" theme. I don't know if you replace the "Win7-Shine 2.0.msstyle" file will work with the other settings like Top, Left, Right etc. Try it and let feedback.

Here is the download ---> www.dropbox.com/s/32sx0cjut2xc…

(tell me if the download is broken, i will replace it)

Again, thanks  zainadeel for the theme.

P.S trought this comment I also please the autor if he can release a "2.1" versione with the windows default colors but in a flat style, like windows 8. thanks.

Nice, I'm using this theme for a long period of time now.

PS About the instructions, Im not sure that step 5 is a must. Done it and all I got were problems, Win7 SP1 home premium. Without that step everything works like a charm.
