    Tia, did you see this link: http://windows7themes.net/upload-windows-7-themes

    You can only upload .themepack files and make sure to click on “Upload Now!” before you click on “Send or Preview”. You can even enter a text for it and upload an image. Should work flawlessly.

    I used these themes and they broke down my windows. They added bad icons and buttons at my windows. Why?

    Couldn’t I setup them.

    Help me.

    Celalettin, those themes are shell themes for Windows 7, so they will change your buttons, icons.. basically everything.

    Sidenote: You would help everyone if you would mention which theme added “bad” icons.

    If you are a beginner you should first read through our tutorials and understand what those themes actually do. I would suggest you start with playing around with themepack desktop themes, they can be installed with a simple double-click and will change everything automatically.

    If you are looking for free themepack desktop themes, you will find plenty here:

    Okay, so i have downloaded a few of the themes from here. I started with the Dark Pearl VS by morphious. I assume that the explorer doesn’t work in that, since i have the 64 bit os. so thats too bad, since that was the main reason why i had wanted it was to have the cool little sidebar at the bottom and the new task bar at the top. It was pretty cool… So next i Downloaded the Mac theme and all i got was a .rar file, what do I do with that?
