I'm in the process of experimenting and tweaking XPs user interface. I've changed the boot screen by modifying ntoskrnl.exe with Resource Hacker, If modified the explorer.exe file to change the start button text, and performed a simple registry hack to change te name of "My Computer". Now I'm looking at changing the white Backgrounds and little colour bars between types of storage in my computer/explorer, and the text it gives for each drive etc, (such as the recycle bin, where it says that it's where all your deleted files go, and click here to empty, etc.) I remember that in 98, the text and background of the my computer pages were built using Hypertext template files (.htt) and bitmap files. You could change the text in the .htt, and change the backgrounds for various pages by changing the bitmaps. This seems to have changed in WinXP. I've tried and tried to find the files I need to modify in the form of xml scripts, win32 executables, bitmaps etc. I just haven't been able to locate what I need to perform this hack. Does anyone know or have any idea where I need to go to change what I'm looking to change. Or for that matter, another thing I'm looking for, which is where to change the 'system grey' color of toolbars etc.
