4th of July Fireworks Theme by Tootsie's Theme Shop - http://members.xoom.com/themeshop/

The photos for the background and logow system screen are courtesy Philip Greenspun, http://photo.net/philg/. A marvelous free screensaver by Fred Cass, http://www.vrman.com, is included for those of you who, like me, hadn't seen his work before. Please read the directions carefully when you unzip vrfireworks.zip as this isn't ordinary and has various requirements and settings.
If the firecracker Normal Select cursor drives you nuts, simply rename or delete it within the theme folder and rename "4thArrowTwo.ani" to "4thArrow.ani." It's a nice normal pointer. :)
If you're using MS Plus!, you should extract the contents of the theme to a new folder named 4th-fireworks within your C:\Program Files\Plus!\Themes directory. If you're using Desktop Themes or the Windows 98 theme installer as I am, simply move the entire unzipped folder to the Themes folder. Please forgive, but I've never had MS Plus! so don't understand this but have been told it's so by an expert.
There are three system screens included. If your software doesn't install these automatically, you'll need to first back up your logo.sys, logow.sys and logos.sys files. Logo.sys is located on C drive, your root directory. The other two are at C:\Windows. Make a new folder and move these files to it for safe keeping. You can then move the theme's logo.sys file to C drive. It's your startup screen while Windows is loading. Move logow.sys and logos.sys to C:\Windows. These are your "waiting for Windows to shut down" and your "It is safe to turn off your computer" screens.
The wav files are compressed and require Microsoft Net Show. If you're running Windows 95 and this has not been installed on your system, go to this site for a free download from Microsoft:
If you're running Windows 98, Net Show is on your Win98 CD. If it has not been installed, have your CD handy and go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Windows Setup, and double click Multimedia. Put a check mark in Audio Compression and Net Show 2.0 and then follow the directions once you've inserted your Windows 98 CD.
If you have Windows 95 and a CD of MSIE 4.0 or higher, you may also find Net Show on that CD.
