    Hello to all the fans and supporters of Samkov's Vista, I would like to Officially announce the release of Samkov's Vista Black v7.0.1. My theme is now error free under the "Normal Fonts" Setting. Large, and Extra Large fonts are still currently under way, but i don't think anyone uses those anyway, however i will fix them in the near future. Samkov's Vista Classic is currently discontinued, however i do plan to update it in the future....stand by for more updates coming soon!


    You will need the following fonts:


    KozGo-Pro (Regular)



    1. Put the Samkov.theme and the Samkov folder provided in this archive in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

    2. Apply and enjoy!!

    If you have a previous version installed please remove it prior to installing the current




    NEW in Version 7.0



    Thanks again,


  3. I appreciate that you uploaded this but honestly I don't feel like messing around with all those steps lol just to see what it looks like and then change back to a less buggy theme right.

    I said screw it and just applied it, from what I can see the start button/orb looks very nice, that is all I can really say at this time.

    I am looking forward to trying a "fixed" version.


    send me those fonts and maybe I can try it... :thumbsup_anim:

    ya i understand, im trying my best to perfect it though.......rc3 will hopefully show that

    EDIT: moved to http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=2930

    admins and or mods please close this current thread as i have decided to start fresh and make this more organized

    thanks again

  4. hi recently on various sites i visit instead of where my use to be blocked adds were, i now have a panel that says: Gathering data...

    Please allow up to 3 hours for this zone to activate. Contact customer service with any questions. so i copied the link location to see what it was all about and i got some site called adbrite, so i googled adbrite errors and everyone who was having problems with it signed up for it, i haven't signed up for it, but currently all the computers in my house receive the same errors, my friends go to the sites but they dont get anything, whats going on here, is it something i should be concerned about?


    edit: ehh seems to be a false alarm, a bunch of people i know are facing the same problem rite now so no need to worry sorry about that

  5. hi today i was modifying my shell32.dll and i found a program that disables wfp for me, i deleted the program, forgot what it was called, but anyways is there any program that can re-enable it for me, the program did have some things to re-enabel it but it was rele confusing, also i am running xp x64 so just wanted to point that as a heads up cause not all tweak utilities support it


    edit: false alarm fixed with wfpadmin

    you can close/delete this is you like

  6. Unfortunately AVG is very hard for a lot of users to configure. Does it prompt you or just delete the files?

    yes it does, it says i can ignore it, but by the time i do the executable is cleaned out and will not even run

  7. hi since i switched to a x64 os ive had a slim pick for certain programs, such as AV, and Firewalls, anyways i finally found a x64 compatible antivirus: AVG free Ed. i do like it a lot, however it does give me a lot of false positives that i kno are legit programs, how do i add a program to the safe list so avg free dosent flag it as a trojan


  8. alrite then im about to upload it to media fire, however there is an error with my msstyles, and you need to follow the directions exactly as i say or it will not work correctly

    if any of you have any questions at all dont hesitate to ask, i appreciate all the comments


    heres the link


    follow the directions exactly it says and you shouldn't run into any problems

    thanks again

    edit: i know there are a few errors including the alignment of the close, min, and max button, i am working on that, if anyone sees any other bugs please report them to me, if you have any comments or anything feel free to post them, if you would like to edit either of the theme feel absolutely free to do so.

  9. hey i know theres tons and tons of aero like msstyles for xp, however i have made up one of my own. it is called samkov's vista and i am going to release it very soon as a rc2 to the public, however id liek to put some news up about it first, to see if anyone here thinks its worth downloading. Basically it started out as the panther theme for xp, idk who made it but i got it somewhere along time ago, a few months later i started getting into msstyle editing and created a theme called limewire, that was a package gone bad and i eventually dropped it and started doing a vista look alike, which included many peoples work combined, aswell as quite a bit of my own personal work. Halfway through the project i decided that there are so many vista look alikes for xp why make another? so then i started modifying thing in it that both I and other made to make it look very different. Im not taking full credit for this msstyle as it is not all my work, some is ripped from pre existing msstyles, but like i said some of it is my own work like the start button

    take a look at the pics below theyre just a few samples and tell me if you would consider trying my theme out?

    im just gonna up 2 images for the time being, but i will post more soon

    EDIT: hello just wanted to post a quick update, series 5 of my start orb is officially here, you can download the theme here


    hope ya like, let me know.

  10. ok its known to all that the vista sidebar for xp works great, for x86 xp, however will not do anything with xp x64, i dont know if i can get it to go, but something crossed my mind today which i think will result in a positive solution, however i need someone with vista x64 to upload the windows sidebar folder aswell as the following .dlls provided in the picture minus the manifest file

    thanks to whoever can help out

    ricktendo64, if i do get this working id like for you to see if perhaps you could make an inf installer for it or somthing cause i really liked how you did it in x86

    thanks again
