    Try it out if you want, it's harmless and highly recommended by reviewers!

    PS, this isn't a spammer raiding my mig account, I just thought I'd post it up! :nod:

    Or sack the Vista look and use thw CrystalClear verstion http://www.crystalxp.net/bricopack/en-crystal-clear.htm

    Much nicer look IMO. Had it on for well over a year.

    Also worth noting that it will go a tad wonky when XP SP3 is installed ( because of the files it changes ). But since SP3 is still beta Im sure it will be sorted when the developers have SP3 to play with.
    Mr Sploodge, Accept No Imitations!

    I've had that a while. The rocket dock thing cleans up the desktop well.
