Nice theme except for the needlessly fiddly installation process others have mentioned and the white areas.

As much as I love this theme it would be hugely appreciated if you could rework it to include the SP1, Explorerframe and Shell32 files so the end user doesn't have to tweak and potentially break their OS, Just drag and drop.
The Windows 8/8.1 version of this is so easy to install, Literally copy and past into your theme folder, I followed your instructions to the letter regarding replacing the dll files and each time it breaks my OS install.
Just food for thought, As it stands right now it's very aggravating.

As a side note I would happily pay for a simple installer that does everything in a few clicks like some of the premium theme creators do.
