View Full Version : Will running customer themes bog down my system

I just noticed there is a free asus and nvidia xp them out, will they cause my system to use extra resources?

Using programs like Window Blinds and StyleXP do use resources, but it's nothing too drastic. I prefer to simply find a hacked uxtheme.dll file for the particular version of XP I'm running. I use that to run my custom themes.

For themes, use the the hacked uxtheme file proggy found in the Neowin.net forums. If your a windows blind fan, suggest checking out WB5 which uses has a much smaller foot print than older versions.

Windowblinds uses less resources than the default Windows theme if you disable the service :)

I use styleXP uses less resource (if you set it to use no resources) than Windowblinds but windowblinds look better :D
