    I hope it's not too late to post this but I've been swamped - I had a few Christmas Windows XP themes archived that I want to share just barely in time for the holidays. Microsoft won't let you use any third-party themes unless you patch your uxtheme.dll. The latest version of UXTheme Multi Patcher can be downloaded from:

    https://www.windowsxlive.net/uxtheme-multi-patcher/

    Scroll all the way to the bottom and click the download link.

    Unzip and run

    Make sure you untick the 'Set Windows X's Live as default homepage' box and hit 'Patch'.

    Wait a bit while it modifies the .dll file.

    Now you can use third party themes!

    I have 3 you can download in 1 zip file:

    Extract to \WINDOWS\Resources\Themes

    Use Explorer and navigate to one of the folders you extracted and click on the .msstyles file.

    Just click 'OK' and you have a festive theme!
