Seven Basic is the Windows 7 Basic style theme designed for Windows XP. This theme replaces old black start menu of Vista with perfect Windows seven start menu. I have tried to copy Windows 7 Log-off/shutdown menu style to give it a look of Windows 7 . This theme supports both 32px and 48px icon. In order to the get result as shown in screen-shot you have to install WindowsX’s LSpatch available in windowsXlive.net, which removes log-off/shutdown text from start menu. Similarly to get the Windows 7 like task-bar (super-bar) visit lee-soft.com and install “Viglance”
This theme doesnot work if uxtheme.dll is not patched you can get Universal patcher from windowsXlive.net or searching for “XP uxtheme.dll patcher” over search engines. Software like TuneUP styler can be used for this purpose as well.
I have tried to give exact Windows 7 basic look in this theme and is some what close to it as far as styling supported by Windows XP. Software like vistart and visplore can be used to get more 7 experience. This software supports Windows XP (all version) only and doesn’t work on other versions of Windows. Transparent UI can be enabled in XP using third party software as XP doesn’t directly support it.
