I am now getting bored of the XP theme on my computer and I want to change it. Does anyone know of good websites that offer FREE theme downloads, and do not contain virus, spyware etc etc.

Thanks

I guess that not everyone will have trouble with thrid-party themes and associated software, but IME it has proven to be a great way to screw up a PC. I had to give up on the Stardock/Wincustomise software and themes and had fun undoing the damage.

Forgot to mention the version you download form here
will do everything but the sliders still looks good though been using W/blinds for sometime now never had a problem,if you do get any sort of probs there is a small default tool called per application you can use that so any progs you open will not be skinned....

used and abused windowblinds and my PC runs sweet as a nut.

Well, once bitten, twice shy I guess. My Windows installation was badly damaged by attempting to use 3rd party themes and icons.

click here click continue and scroll down to Royale. I think it is the best they have ever done, and you know it is safe.

Why not use a picture of your own choice?

I have a selection, including one of my car, already set up and change them whenever I get bored.

Thanks! Ive seen pictures of this theme here there and everywhere (in magazines, screen shots, various sites etc.) but never found the name or where to get it. Thanks for pointing me to Royale, i really like it!

I'm with ade.h on this one. I had so many issues with Windows Blinds that I had to remove it - and that was only the beginning of my problems!
