    I tried StyleXP before, I didn't have much problems with it.

    but from what i gather, window blinds seems to have a larger variety of visual styles to pick and customise from.

    Windows blinds is great for those who don't run XP. For those who do, StyleXP is preferrable as it uses XP's own in built skinning engine. WindowsBlinds is really just skinning on top of windows and subsequently needs more memory. There are loads of themes available for both, i can't comment on WB's as i've never used it.

    What usually comes from these discussions is that the UXTHEME Multi-Patcher is the best option. With XP 'patched', there is no need for any third party apps. Simply select themes via Windows display properties. Make sure and follow the instructions and you will have no problems with it.

    The best place to find themes and visual styles is http://www.themexp.org/ .

    The manual version of the UXTHEME.dll patch is your best and safest alternative to StyleXP. Made by TGT Soft as freeware so it is a helluva lot more stable than the auto-patch version, which produces mixed results for many users.

    Here is a link to the downloads for the patch and instructions:

    Besure to use the correct version. SP-1 or Non Sp-1.
