Alienware - Windows 7 Theme Customization

Another one for my Technomancers.... This time we're going Extra-Terrestrial...

This is the best free Alienware Windows 7 theme and the Alienware visual style for Windows 7 that you've been searching for...

This theme will change the way your desktop looks. Right from the explorer windows, start orb, to the icons and mouse pointers. Here are a couple of images to show you what your desktop will soon look like.

Unlike the Red HUD Umbrella Corporation theme I posted before, this one is a bit more on the novice side. Alienware Windows 7 comes courtesy of Theme Raider

So, let's begin...

The following are files you will need to achieve Alienware:


NB: Follow these instructions in order and be sure you know what you're doing at each level. 

1. To use any 3rd party visual style, your system must be patched first. This needs to be done only once. So if you are already have some visual styles running in your system, skip this step. If not, run the 'UxStyle' file you downloaded and complete the setup.

2. Open the 'Concave 7' file you downloaded (You'll need WinRAR or 7-Zip to open the file) and extract the two contents (Concave 7 folder and Concave7.theme file) in the following path: "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes". Do not run the file! (If you get an error when you extract, try to extract to the desktop and copy the files from desktop to the Themes folder

3. Run the 'Theme Resource Changer' file that you downloaded and complete the setup.

4. Run the 'AlienwareThemeRaider.themepack' file that you downloaded.

That's it! A custom made sci-fi desktop made by yourself. Give yourself a pat on the back!

Props to yingjunjiu for making the really cool Alien cursor and MrGRiM01 for making the incredible Concave visual style.
Reset to default: Choosing the Windows 7 Aero theme will set everything back to default. Icons, start icon, visual style and everything else.
