I updated to an "Aero" Theme today, and I love it. (http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/19519681/) Pretty freaking sleek. Anyway, the VS came with all sorts of other goodies; mainly file-replacements for Mydocs.dll, Shell32.dll, Explorer.exe, Notepad, MSPaint, Calc, etc. Is it safe to replace said files (I know that replacing system files is always risky, but hey, what the hell)? Is there a program out there to do it for me (I am lazy :p )? Does anyone replace said files on a regular basis?

Yeah that looks cool. Now how the hell do I use it????? :confused:
To apply the style, you'll need to patch the UXTheme.dll file (I think that that isthe name). There are countless applications that will do it for you. The one I use can be found Here.

No, I usually stick to this one visual style, it's fine without all the other stuff. You should be able to replace those file in safe mode though, just make backups first.

And it's made in France. Glad to know that something in the world isn't made in china.
