    you guys really stink at windows. you should learn how to use the "regedt32" aka registry editor.

    you can customize everything. images, directories, turn off stuff, or create personal actions. its almost like linux except easier to use.

    i use blackbox bblean verson. it can comeplely redo your desktop. but you may have to do alot of reading to figure how it works. but after you master most of it, no one will ever know you run windows!
    you can also use theme manager to change the

    boot screen(thing that says windows with the moving loading bar)
    and the login screen(place you click on your account)

    no i can customize everything from all the images. the OS shell. the logon. the bootupskin. and everysingle image just by using the registery editor and reshack.

    however. you are all noobs. i wouldnt expect you to perform this level of tweeking.

    btw windows blind sucks.

    I'd recommend you to shut up, although you are basically right. I used to modify everything obsessively much like you do, but I realized that it just confuses the visitors to my computer and takes away the time that I could spend on the tightening of the server's security and adding new features to the website. Plus the system boots up unattended, so nobody would appreciate any cool pics anyway. So don't feel like a 1337 h4xx0r, all's been done, the functionality is the most important thing. I discourage everyone from using Window Blinds - it's unstable and hungry on the resources. I'm using one StyleXP skin myself conservatively and I'm satisfied.
    I used ResHacker on 2 important things: Enlarging the Lock Computer window to cover the whole desktop And updating the version number in legitcheckcontrol.dll. Any other hacks are mostly useless. I perform them only when some friend is really excited about it and wants me to do it.
