    vista default is black -

    for win XP -> you can do it two ways. You can opt for high contrast colors, which is for people who are visually impaired. Easier - right click on desktop, Properties, there is a panel for Visual Settings (or something similar...I have forgotten...on Vista now) You can then choose colors/fonts/sizes for all kinds of things - the taskbar should be an option

    Did you install the Neowin uxtheme.dll patch before installing the theme from deviantart?? You will have to install that before installing the theme.

    Hmm..... I've tried looking for the options to do the easy thing on Win XP listed above, but I can't find them! Help, please!

    I noticed when I clicked on that link to the taskbar image that it's not in English! Will the taskbar automatically go to English or will it go to that language that is displayed on the taskbar in the image? Also, does that patch and the taskbar give you viruses? I really really would like a black taskbar, like on Vista!

    I hope to hear from you soon about these two things.

    Thanks for reading

    I just use WindowsBlinds. Changes the whole GUI depending on what theme you want. Its worth it IMO, since I can't stand my anything looking like anyone else's.
