and how to apply this theme? in Vista i used to use StyleSelector 1.06, but it do not work any more in 7s, also i have instaled Uxstyle core, but it makes no difference somehow..

Is it Windows Vista compatible?

Vista?!?! The only two recommended Windows operating systems are XP and 7. I recommend you to move on to 7 soon.

That really cool!

How to install this themes in windows 7 i try all the way

You will copy those files to: c:\users\ \Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\themes

Once you've downloaded this theme file, unzip it. Place the files somewhere in a 'temp' directory. Then, download the 'Universal theme patcher,' (google it, you'll find it soon).

When you have the theme patcher prg., RUN it: it will patch -dependent on the windows 7 version you have- either 3 files or 6 files. Some very small changes are made in these 3 or 6 files in the windows\system32\ directory. Don't be afraid, there's a restore function in this program, you can always return to its original state.

Now, place all the files from the luna theme in C:\windows\resources\themes.

Restart your pc; click right mouse on the desktop, in the menu that appears, choose 'personalize', in the section 'installed themes' you will now see the luna theme, click on it..and presto, you're back to the nice XP look...
