Moved to tech discussion I think that its a program called Style XP, Which is (as the name suggests) only for XP systems. It comes on a 14 day trial I think.

actually that particular scheme is from Windoblinds, which i used for a while and that same scheme also, their both pretty fun little tools if you like customizing your destop to the extreme, Windowblind work on a plugin system to and actually you can get a addon that is a tool simply for designing your own window and all to create your own scheme, really good program. windowblinds has a 30 day trial i believe but is a little more expensive than styleXP if i remember right, on thing to note they can both eat up a loth of CPU cycles if you use them to much.

oh thats right, windowblinds is free but all the extra that can go with can be obtained when you buy object desktop, you can get a plethora of tools with that and do anything with the interface.

www.themexp.org Patch your uxtheme.dll so you can use MS Theme files directly without theme XP. Just patch, clace them in %windows\System 32\Resources\Themes and launch the msstyle.

Thank you. I use this patch OVER ANY prog that applies visual styles to windows schemes. P.S. - themexp.org rulez my desktop.
