    Vague recollection of an old XP theme

    Hiya guys!

    I saw a really cool XP theme a few years ago on my school PC and I just wanted to know if anyone could tell me where to find it. Sadly, I can recall only 2 characteristic features:

    • Orange, XP-Style title bars (kind of like how the (icky) Olive theme uses XP-Style title bars, but they are green instead of blue)
    • Black color Start-Menu


    Ya, it's a pretty vague recollection, but I hope someone here has a better memory than me.

    Cheers,
    maligo

    That sounds like some color combinations I recall from Windows 3.1x. Some pages found with themes, there's a whole bunch to look through:

    Thanks for your reply Berton. I found the theme I was looking for on Softonic. It's the "Zune" theme that MS released for XP around the same time it released the Zune Player. And sorry for giving the wrong description, but the title bars are actually black not orange. Anyways, here's a link to the theme:
