Windows 7 Theme for Windows XP

We are not going to get our hands on much anticipated Microsoft Windows 7 anytime soon, but we can enjoy the look and feel now on our Windows XP & Vista system's using the "Windows 7 Desktop Theme", Since not much details about the upcoming OS is available, the theme looks very similar to Windows Vista but provide some nice refreshing changes to the same old look.

To install:

  1. Download Windows 7 Theme here >>
  2. Install "UXTheme Multi-Patcher 6.0.exe" from "UX Theme Patcher" folder.
  3. Double-click "Windows 7 M1 VS.msstyles" in "Theme\Windows 7 M1 VS" folder to install.

VirusTotal Report [Result: 1/35 (2.86%)] >>
(With one finding by Prevx1 as "Must Read Before USE.txt" - is undecided)

I don`t have any problem enough...
^_^ asyem

Any ideas on how to adjust?
Screen dump link here...


da f sgf fsg fg

thx anyway


Mga juebos de enyo, loko loko

Sa nag overlap ung start menu

what the hell are u talking about???
ass hole


just to change my desktop appearance

now forget about "UXTheme".. i dont trust this thing..
download and install StyleXP 3.19 and this theme's .msstyles .. u doubleclick it and u can then apply it..


What about Tune-Up Utilities? It's got a styler.

I had been using the UXTheme. I dont know how bt I also got an option of XBOX theme in the same package and now after fomating my C drive I cant get the same XBOX theme back through the UXTheme.

Maybe now you are using Windows XP Service Pack 3 and need to use the newer UXTheme patcher.

No good it keeps rebooting my pc and nothings happen..

It's perfect.. thanks for sharing.

I want english language for the start menu...pls tell me where is the multi-language setting...tnx anyway!

Worked perfect. Vista look without Vista performance.


I don't mean to offend, but this doesn't look anything like Windows 7. THIS is Windows 7:

Take a look for yourself between that, Windows Vista, and the Windows 7 theme.

You can also use tune up utilities to apply this theme to windows xp or vista

thank you

it work, but icon packagers still hasnt changed at all..
does anyone know why this happen?

Nice theme..hope it will work .

where would i get windows 7 full for free

For x32:
For x64:

These are for the latest build (6801).

PS: If you DO manage to install it, remember to tell me how, since I've only got the files from an ISO image.

PPS: I want to install Windows 7 through a CD-ROM boot. Please tell me how.

What you can do is something different: try writing down the image on a 4 GB USB flash disk: like oppening up the ISO image that you have downloaded and extract all the data from it into the flash disk, and then set your computer's BIOS to boot up from the flash disk, if it has that function, then you can install the OS with absolutely no problem. Or find a way to modify the ISO image, and create a safety COPY of the original, after that, you can modify the image by copying the file Install.WIM (you can find this file in the image in the Sources folder), copy this file outside the folder into your HDD (the file has a size about 2GB, or 2000MB, or even more), after that you can delete it from the image. After you have deleted the Install.Wim file from the image only, keep it on the Hard Disk. and write the image onto a CD (all that's left of it is about 400MB). Next: -Restart the PC
-Verify the disk if it is bootable,
-If the CD is bootable eject it, you still have some work to do.
-Open the Install.Wim File with 7ZIP (an archiving program)
-After opening the file, Disect it into more archives that can fit on CDs (3 would be enough, each being no larger than 570MB)
-Write down the archive sections on CDs
-Restart the PC and begin the installation.
PS]]>> The PC MUST have the same hardware that is required for Vista, or windows 7 will not be installed. PS]]>> You have to detain Hardware drivers (like for the video card's drivers) to be Vista Compatible, or at least Ready, to work with windows 7. Plus: I am not responsable for any PC Defections you might encounter while you're attempting OS installations under my instruction.

You can download windows 7 via torrent, I downloaded Windows 7, but it's still under construction and testing, because it's a BETA version, and nobody knows what modifications it needs to get to be perfectly stable...The Windows 7 has the same hardware requirements as Vista (the earlier version; 512 MB RAM, 12GB HDD space) but it's way better than vista, and has way cooler things, and the greatest thing about it is that it looks way cooler than XP or Vista wil ever look. For more details, here's my e-mail: Good luck!

you can get it from free but your computer should have it's requirements

Nice good

Dude This has trojan horse! My Mcafee antivirus caught it

I checked the file using VirusTotal multi-scanner and 16 engines found a possible virus, earlier I had personally scanned the file before uploading using Eset Smart Security with latest definition updated but it did not found anything, to remove all possibilities of malicious file and to be on the safe side I had removed the suspicious file "Vista Orb.exe" from the archive and re-uploaded it, see post above for VirusToal report for the new upload.

Thanks for pointing out.

This worked great - until I re-booted and then Windows came up exactly as it did before I installed this theme....?


AGUS ~ AGUS..........


Masih idup toh si agus teh?

thanh you

this is great but the language is not in english how do you change and my taskbar hasen't changed only my start menu. Somebody help please please please.

I have service pack 3 installed and it's not working, can some one tell me how to fix it?

amazing theme and work nice for me!!!

In the description there is a shot of a desktop without ViOrb and with ViOrb.

Also, this theme is crap. Doesn't look anything like Windows 7 M1. You should make a Windows 7 6801 theme for XP. That would kick butt!

mine works fine after following the simple instruction! :) thanx

Please help me.

thank you

Mag iyot nalang mo tanan

thanks for the mod it looks good in my system it really looks like that i am running windows 7 in my system instead of windows xp pro

thanks again

I set this theme on my brother's machine, but there were a few problems (some of which, I'm still trying to fix).
Firstly, the start bar items were in a different language. This wasn't such a biggie seeing as I was able to change the settings.xml file that contained almost all the start menu items. The only thing it doesn't have is the Run button. Does anyone know how to include this function in an XML file?

Secondly, and this the more crucial part I think, the theme looks more like Vista to me than Win7. I dunno if I did something wrong, but the windows on my brother's pc look the same as XP, there is no vista/win7 type modifications to them at all. Was there a .dll or something that I was supposed to replace that I probably didn't?

Most importantly though, there's the false expecation on this theme that I have a very big problem with. The name of the article implies that this theme will make your Windows XP look as close to Windows 7 possible, but it doesn't. Has the author of this skin actually seen Windows 7? I have my doubts to be honest. I won't deny that there was effor there, but to be realistic, there's no way you can make a true Windows 7 theme for XP purely because XP doesn't support transarency on the windows. There are also things like the side bar and clickable thumbnail previews on the windows that 7 has that XP doesn't.

Good effort on the Windows Vista theme for XP though.

On the other hand, it's likely my problems might come from the fact that I wasn't able to download the theme with the link on this article because I don't use Rapidshare.

Instead, I downloaded the theme direct from the author's page on DeviantArt. I know it's the same thing because the filenames are the same, and so are the screenshots. Did anyone add something to the file on Rapidshare that maybe isn't on the download from DeviantArt?

with all these errors, caught virus by McAfee, not working replys and 'keep rebooting' issues... I'm not even going to try it!
