Ya

Ya, I did that pretty soon after building my computer. Be careful though, as you might mess up your registery and have to reinstall windows 7(Like me), lession learned, but luckily, I had only just installed windows anyway so not a big deal.

I use a Nexus - its a custom dock program, and also Rainmeter, which has hugh customization options.

Also if you would like I can give you the info/links I accumulated while customizing mine.

OK, I will search my files:

So far I have found Log-on editer:

Just run the program, then click browse then navigate to the folder you just unzipped and go into the "Logons" folder, you can choose any of these for your startup/log-on background. You can also change a few other things.

Here is the link: logon editor.7z

I will upload more as I find them.

Here is another one, this allows you to change the windows start orb/button, it also includes a few orbs/buttons I downloaded.

Just run the program, click the orb and browse to the folder you just unzipped then go to the folder "Orb" then select the one you want.

Here is the zip:W7SBC.zip

If you wish to change your theme to a custom one, then it does get a bit complicated, but I can guide you through it and upload the programs needed and a collection of themes I have downloaded. Let me know.

Coder for Life - Project - Windows 7 Boot Updater

Windows 7 boot animation updater. Lets you change the animation and text. I have used it myself and it works perfectly. It also makes a backup of all previous animations. This way you can easily go back to the standard boot animation if you want.

nothingleft09 - Ya, I have a custom theme, start orb, rainmeter and dock with custom icons.

I have already posted a link to the start orb changer. To change the theme you need to patch windows 7, to do this download and run this program: UniversalThemePatcher_20090409.zip

Then run the UniversalThemePatcher-x64 or UniversalThemePatcher-x86 depending on what system your running(64bit or 32bit). Then follow the on-screen instructions, once the patch is complete, you will be asked to restart your system, do so.

THEN - Once this is done, you will be able to use custom themes, but you still need to download themes and place them in the correct folder.

I have downloaded a few themes and they are at this link: Themes.zip

Once downloaded simply unzip and move the contents of the folder to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

Then simply right-click your desktop and select "personalize" then scroll down to "installed themes" and select the one you like.

This was a few years ago, on WinXP. Emerge Desktop, Samurize, etc.



I don't use any of that stuff anymore, though I got used to not having any desktop icons, and I've stuck with it after the switch to Win7.

My old computer had heaps of rainmeter stuff and all the mods and stuff to rocketdock.. When I changed computer I never bothered to re-do it all, but I've also stuck to the No Items on desktop and just mount everything I use to the Taskbar.

I've always liked the clean look. I might try pinning all my icons to my task bar and getting rid of all the bull shit icons I don't use. I'll take a before and after tonight.

I decided to download rainmeter and rocketdock again and have a play around, this is pretty close as I could get to my old setup, minus the wallpaper, and this ones much better anyways.

It looks so ....ing mature, my god. I'm not the best with computers, but I'm going to do this. If I fail, and lose everything, I'm blaming all of you for tempting me.
