Ok this site helped me so i will put the info back out there.
For those of you running vista, you need to click on start.
Now in the start search box, type folder options.
You will see it at the top of the list.
Click on it.
Now Click on the view tab.
One of the selections in this view will be HIDDEN FOLDERS.
Make sure that SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS is selected.
Right below that make sure HIDE EXTENSIONS FOR KNOWN FILE TYPES is unchecked.
Hit APPLY.

Now go to Start again. In the very top right hand corner of that window you will see a name of some sort. Probably your own. It's w/e you named your computer. Click on that.
Now you should see a sorta ghostly looking folder called AppData.
Click on that.
Click on Roaming
Click on Limewire
Click on Themes
Now this is the folder you will save your zipped themes.
From here you will right-click on any zipped folder that you save here and rename it. Literally right-click and scroll down that box until you highlight rename. A box will form around the current file name. Press the right arrow key. press backspace until you see .zip disappear. type .lwtp. Press enter.
Your new file should read whatever.ltwp.
It used to read whatever.zip
Now you can open limewire and go to view, and go to apply skins and then select w/e skin you want.

I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to get a new skin on my Limewire, and yet I did it before. I got a new computer & had to download Limewire again. I don't remember the skin files coming up as a .zip file. Anyway, I followed your instructions, and voila, it worked! Yours seemed to be the clearest instructions. Thankyou, thankyou.

what do you do if Limewire doesn't exist in the Roaming folder?
