Please update the batch script to reflect this:

@echo Installing patched uxtheme.dll 

ren %windir%\system32\uxtheme.dll uxtheme.old

del %windir%\ServicePackFiles\i386\uxtheme.dll

copy /b /y uxtheme.dll %windir%\system32\uxtheme.dll

copy /b /y uxtheme.dll %windir%\system32\dllcache\uxtheme.dll

pause

This works on all systems, even systems where windows is not installed in c:\windows.

Try to write proper batch scripts and clean them of all your personal **** like "rem deltree..." etc..

I know the /b option for copy isn't really necessary but it's the proper way to do it when you are handling binary files.

Tip: For far better installers try NSIS

Another tip: If you just want something else that looks more decent than the standard **** of a theme Microsoft bundles with their fat OS, fetch Royale Noir theme and unpack in %windir%\resources\themes (see the %windir% thing I just did there? I think you get it). Oh and you need something that can unpack 7z archives. 7-zip will do that just fine (and bonus: It's a really nice and fast archive program).

Hello. Neat post. There's a problem with the web site in firefox, and you may want to test this... The browser is the market chief and a big portion of people will leave out your excellent writing because of this problem.
