haven't noticed that at all maybe your talking about an old version the new version does say updated network issues...... Its everything in one install and much simpler to use with one control panel rather then lots of them as I like to tweak the settings quite a bit so having it all in one place makes it easier for me

heres the one I used which is just one install Windows X’s Shrine Ľ Enhancements

It would theoretically have a small performance reduction but its fairly minimal with a high or mid spec system not noticeable apart from when you log on it can take an extra second or two thats all I have noticed

I like windowsblinds because it has a WIDE selection of themes and its easy to design your own theme. Plus You can even change the color of your theme really quickly

Now the one thing that does run in the background is DesktopX and ObjectDock, which cant really be avoided. ObjectDock is very useful and u can even run more than one dock at a time and if you want it to use less ram you can turn down the graphics settings in the menu.
