ok...lets tell u the entire thing properly, in the c:\\windows\resources\themes folder, u might get a folder with ur favorite theme folder inside it. inside that theme folder u will find a folder called as Shell, inside that folder u find a shellstyle.dll file. this file is responsible for defining the shell style color of the windows xp themes, this is the file that u need to replace inorder to get the green look as shown in the screenshot above.

If u want to edit the above shellstyle.dll file and want to make a new background image, then use any hex editor software like regedit, and u can easily edit the shell style, color, position of the shell and the commands written in it.

Umm.. Are you sure this is XP? How did you manage to get the start button emerging? And the transparency? :[

I have a shell like this but its.. black. From Vishal Gupta. Do I need the same background for it to look right?

Also.. how do I download? No patcher.. no renaming files? etc.. just download? and put it into your themes? :O

yes just download it, it has a predefined installer in it. you have to run it. as of the start orb, u can use a freeware program called as viorb, for the vista start orb like look. the transparency you can get by using a freeware program called as truetransparency.

u can download viorb from lee-soft.com and true transparency from crystalxp..net

Really nice, but I don't know how to apply it.
I tried to replace but it said that I can't replace the shell because it's in use

First try changing the XP theme to the default theme, or any other theme other than the one whose shell u want to replace...in simple words make sure that the theme whose shell u want to replace is not in use at that time.

I know many of u are confused about this shell replacement kinda thing...i was actually thinking of putting up a readymade visual style...but these vista critics...always tend to critisize!!
