This is junk. Try to remove the program. It messes with your system so bad that if you dont like it and try to remove it you have to format and re-install.

All these programs that try to imitate Vista on XP do such a horrible job of it. Get a real copy of Vista and you'll see its more than just a new taskbar/start menu and some transparent effects.

Ditto.

None of them even come close to cloning Vista.

Well, Beryl/XGL can get pretty close.

The same as is the point of cloning Vista in XP... to make it look like Vista. :nerd:

No, not really. It uses slightly more than Compiz, because of all the plugins. But Compiz uses next to nothing.

Yes. On all ATI cards, all nVidia cards and all Intel cards.
