WOW, Thanks psycoB... Your a genius.. a legend.. a Hero

Your work is amazing, and your generosity to share this information is appreciated very much.

In a well known forum your name is mentioned in many threads, there are many people that appreciate your work.
I have used most of your hex-editing tricks. Thankyou very much.

Now all that remains to complete my theme is to change the text in the Shellstyle Info Bar. Hopefully you can teach me how to change this too.

Thanks again, and keep up the good work, Themeing Vista just wouldnt be the same without your shared knowledge :)
