Issue with Windows XP skins and itunes/ipod

Hi,
I'm one of those people who likes to customize their XP sessions. The latest i've tried is pack-vista-inspirat-2-1.0 and a few months ago was a similar app to make xp look like mac osx (can't remeber what it was called).
Issue:
When the skin is applied, itunes and ipod always give an error along the lines of:
# The iPod "Customer's iPod" cannot be updated. An unknown error occurred (-50)"
# "The disk could not be read from or written to"
# "The iPod "Customer's iPod" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1418)
This is resolved by uninstalling the theme. I get no issues with something like VistaVG which get copied into C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes as itunes works ok with it.
Is there a way for itunes to co-exist with these theme applications? Is Apple trying to tie down my PC so the only way i can "pimp" it is to by a mac and sync the ipods there??!
Any advice would be appreciated, if only to make my XP session a bit more "interesting"!
Thanks
