OMG! What have I done? Everything looks different.

Well, makes a change don't it? :D

I went for the Vista Inspirat Ultimate 2 pack, all the trimmings.

Cheapest OS upgrade I can imagine... ;)

And yes, it looks (and sounds and feels) quite good.

What a clever app! Does it slow down your system at all?

Hmmm, i like the sound of this, what happens if you uninstall it, i take it it dont destroy anything after changing the system files?

What about performance?

This installation makes some permanent changes do I doubt very much whether an uninstall would revert all back to it's previous state.

I haven't messed myself yet but I'd imagine you'd have to change things back manually, sounds, icons, appearance et al - which could be quite time consuming and may even require some 'specialist' knowledge.

My advice would be that if you have any doubts at all about whether you'd like it or not - don't do it.

Myself, I have quite a strange conundrum here - the fastest bloatware-free version of Vista known to mankind :D

Alright, so it ain't got DX10 - but it sure look purdy ;)

As I was reading the info on this it does say to un-install using the facillity provided and not the add an remove progs in windows . Does that help any ??

Ok, just tried changing the appearance - no probs there, all the old options were there.

That still leaves the sounds, icons, start up and close down screens and probably quite a bit more.

Myself, after six years of the same ol same ol, this is quite refreshing and I'm loving it :)

Of course, this program only does what other aps like Style XP have been doing for years, together with lots of guys out there who design themes, skins and other aspects of XP.

Again, if you search enough, you'll find out how to make the changes yourself, it just takes some looking for, is all - and it's quite legal too.

All this program does is do the whole thing in one hit automatically - which suits (lazy) me just fine ;)
