    Basically it's a nice little prog that manages the visual settings on windows, allows for some pretty sweet themes and stuff..

    None. It's a freeware replacement for stylesxp.

    Patcher for UXTHEME.DLL.

    WARNING: User assumes all responsibility for running the patch program
    and patching the uxtheme.dll file. User agress to hold harmless TGT Soft
    LLC. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not patch the file.

    To patch UXTHEME.DLL you must follow these directions. If it does not
    work, please do not email us. We tried.

    First, you must have administrator privileges.
    Second, you must understand how to rename and copy files.
    Third, you must understand where your system directory is and how to
    navigate there (although the patcher will tell you where it is).

    If you update your Windows(r) XP operating system, the patch may become
    invalid.

    Ready? Here are the instructions.

    1) Run the uxthemepatcher.exe. This program will produce a "uxtheme.pat"
    file in your system32 directory. If this program fails, DO NOT
    CONTINUE.

    2) After you have successfully run uxthemepatcher.exe, a message box
    will tell you where the uxtheme.pat file is. If your system directory
    is c:\windows\system32 -- the uxtheme.pat file will be there. If it is
    c:\winnt\system32 -- the uxtheme.pat file will be there. And so on.
    Make a mental note of where the .pat file is.

    3) Assuming your system directory is c:\windows\system32 go into the
    directory c:\windows\system32\dllcache. This directory may be hidden.
    If it is, you need to unhide it to see it, or use the command prompt.

    4) Rename the uxtheme.dll file in dllcache to uxtheme.bak (or some other
    name).

    5) Rename any uxtheme.dl_ or uxtheme.dll that might be found in other
    locations on your system such as c:\i386 or the place where you
    installed Windows(r) XP from.

    6) Make sure you have NO CDs in your system (especially the Windows(r) XP
    install CD!).

    7) Assuming your system directory is c:\windows\system32 go into the
    directory c:\windows\system32. Rename uxtheme.dll to uxtheme.bak or
    some other name. Copy uxtheme.pat to uxtheme.dll.

    8) You might get a warning from Windows System File Protection. You need
    to answer the two questions properly, and on your own volition to
    ensure that the uxtheme.dll file is not replaced with the original.

    9) If all goes well, the uxtheme.dll will be the same DATE and TIME as
    the uxtheme.pat. If this is the case, REBOOT. Do not logoff, you need
    a full reboot.
