Apparently there's no shellstyle for Windows Classic in XP and I want to change the "These files are hidden" background on the Windows Classic theme. Does anyone know where the bitmap resources for Windows Classic can be located? I'm not talking about whatever resources are used for the window borders but I'm talking about the bitmaps that are usually in shellstyle including the background I mentioned earlier.

best utility, does massive scan and massive dump
no need for file search :P (tho dumps will indicate from which file it took resource)

Ah yes, I found it in the System32 folder but I don't see a .DL_ file of it in the i386 folder on the CD :/
Did microsoft use a different file name for shellstyle as a .DL_ file? I want to make a custom ISO which has a different look.

EDIT: FOUND IT! It's CLASS_SS.DL_
