XPize Darkside 2.1
Bring some dark to your Windows wizards, logon screen and other visual elements.
The new wallpaper is simple: a black background with almost imperceptible discolorations resembling a faint light source reflecting on the black texture. The icons are now adjustable from 32 up to 128 DPI, allowing you to make them look more like the icons on Vista or Windows 7. In this respect, you can also change the desktop icon spacing and bring them closer together of set them further apart, to your liking.
The desktop icon's background is now set to the default color of the theme and is no longer transparent. Even so, you can choose to alter this selection and roll back to the previous setting through the application's Settings GUI.
XPize Darkside uses TaskSwitchXP Pro to deploy the changes to the Windows XP visual interface, so aside from the application's settings, you can use TaskSwitchXP Pro's interface to perform even more adjustments to the visual theme, such as modifying the default font for text, assigning hotkeys or defining exclusions.
Other than that, it also changes the color scheme for Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Microsoft Office and Windows Media Player and brings a new set of cursors and a new screensaver to integrate with the theme. So if you feel like changing the appearance of your Windows XP, you should consider giving it a try, especially because it does all the modifications automatically, unlike most of the applications changing the visual appearance of Windows.
Nevertheless, you should consider performing a system backup and a restore point beforehand, since the application tampers with the system files and Windows Registry.
