I was able to change the User Account Picture with my own custom picture. I was able to do this by editing the "authui.dll" file you provided for the Windows 8 Login Screen. You'll need to download and install Resource Hacker and a photo editing program to make the change.

Do these files contain viruses because I am very cautious when downloading things as I don't want a broken laptop?!

You cannot change window borders color in this theme. Already talked about this a million times on this pages.

One question! If I want to switch back to Windows 7 theme, will it work or it will stay win 8 forever? Just asking, I have no problem with the win 8 theme, my cousin has win 8 and I loved the theme, but I also like win 7 themes :)

Of course you can go back to Windows 7 theme, very easy.

The only problem with this is when you download files from the internet on Chrome, it doesn't let you select where to download

mare-m Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2015
The only problem is that you didn't read the instructions carefully. You probably copied 64-BIT file from pack (explorerframe.dll) in System32 folder and SysWOW64 folder. This is wrong. If you have Windows 7 64-BIT, in System32 folder you must copy 64-BIT file from pack but in SysWOW64 folder (this folder is 32-BIT folder in Windows 7 64-BIT) you must copy 32-BIT file.
