Is there any website sells desktop themes and wallpaper?
Everything I've found is freeware and inundates you with adware.
I want something without all the hasles.

I use Windowsblinds for themes..

Windowblinds

For desktop pictures and themes I also use WinCustomize

WinCustomize

Both are free but can be upgraded to pay versions.

StyleXP is really awsome, I even found a "Vista" theme. Which looks pretty cool, I hate the highlight (brightblue) and the scrollbars (white on white).
