Windows Forums member, Uvais, shares a skin pack made by DeviantArt user ~hameddanger. The package is designed to work with Windows 7 SP1 (download Service Pack 1–SP1–for Windows 7) and will work with both the 32 bit and 64 bit version.

Note: Before installing this skin pack, create a system restore point.

Here’s what it looks like on my PC (click to enlarge):

    Are you referring to the grey line above “Control Panel Home”? I have no idea what causes that. It’s possible the theme author is aware/can find out…

    Thanks for sharing this wallpaper, Rich. I think DeviantArt is great. I downloaded theme from the site to give my PC the same Metro look that the Windows phone 7 has. If you’re interested in getting that interface as well, I’ve put together a quick how-to on my blog: http://bit.ly/mKDCCi
