    I have some programs that -force- windows classic look even though I am running Aero. This really bugs me because I can't stand the classic look and it looks terribly inconsistent and ugly with the rest of the apps I run...

    I looked around and it turns out that older applications need a 'manifest' file of some kind to make it so they use the Xp and Aero theme buttons and stuff. That I'd need to take a manifest file and call it filename.exe.manifest to make that program get themed.

    Can anyone tell me where I can get a such file so I can fix the lack of theming in some of the programs I have?
