its not possible to use third party themes on windows 7 ,without first patching some of the theme dll,s . there is a tutorial here and a patching tool . http://www.askvg.com/download-windows-xp-luna-theme-for-windows-7/ you will then be able to use the featured windows xp theme ,and hundreds of other third party themes available online ,but be aware ,,although you will have the desktop look of XP , the menu,s will still work in windows 7 way ,there is no workaround for this.
