Windows Xp Theme for Portable Apps Menu

Ok this is my first attempt at a theme. You can preview it here
and if you like it you can download it Temporarily unavailable until the icons are replaced with something else

Any comments or something I could do to improve this theme please feel free to post.

(ohh I almost forgot Execute the exe file at this level PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\App.)
ohh and make a backup of your current theme too in case you want to switch to your old theme

looks good, but i don't know

looks good, but i don't know if you're allowed to redistribute the windows icons, and it seems that all of the icons you used are the XP system icons.

Easy

Easy just create a new image based off of the drive_space_slider.bmp image and make it any color you want

Just a couple suggestions...

Perhaps...

1.It's a clever idea to try to put the user image box around the PortableApps icon.
However, I think it might look nicer if you put a colour inside the box, or maybe
just put an actual picture to the right side.

2.Just at the top it's missing a chunk.

Ok

1. I agree to a certain degree with what you said

2. it's a screenshot that I took of the menu on my old laptop and the display isn't great

Ok.

2. Okay, I figured it might be something like that.

Overall, I really like the theme though.
