Seems like the taskbar, font, and cursor changes are only done in Windows Basic (aero is disabled).
I like Windows aero enabled, so I just changed my wallpaper and Start Menu button from his theme..

The ROG icon button replacing the drab Windows Start Menu button is a nice consolation prize, though.
If you want to change your Windows Start Menu button with the ROG button, here's how:
-download and use this: http://www.door2windows.com/windows-7-start-button-changer-change-your-windows-7-start-button-with-one-click/
-open "explorer" file (in the unzipped ROG theme) and choose between the 2 BMP files that are within. Click "start".

To use 3rd party themes(custom) you would need to patch 3 DLL files inside system32 for x86 windows versions and SysWOW64 for x64 bit versions.

3 DLLs are

uxtheme.dll
themeui.dll
themeservice.dll

Use this program to patch the 3 files ( see ATTACHMENT ) should have both x64 and x86 versions.

All you have to do is . Unzip the folder . Run the program in RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR. Right click the app and choose " Run as Administrator " ( for those that don't know how to run things as in administrator) then click the language (English) and click YES on the next window. To PATCH to all 3 files just click PATCH for each dll file . You will get a message saying successfully patched files after each dll file. Then you may close the app and restart your PC. Then you should be able to use the 3rd party themes. Make sure the theme folder and the .theme file is inside " c:\Windows\Resources\Theme " folder

Note: Windows 7 x64 will patch the files in both system32 and syswow64 folders
Windows 7 x86 will patch the files in System32 folder.

Is ther also a link of the rogo log itself, for trying it out after installing the prog?! & does it fade out, like the colors of the windows log, whene your arrow on it? I would try it, but i'm not quiet sure of it...

I'm sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean by "rogo log" and "windows log"..

EDIT: If you were asking the ROG start menu button link, it's included in the ROG theme.
Yes, just like the Windows start menu button/orb, it also has default, hover, and pressed animations.

If you want to try it, download and unzip the ROG Theme link on my post #2.
Then follow the suggestions I gave on post #4.

Saw that there's an ROG Win7 theme. Does it too display lines in shadows on G74SX-DH72?
