Default Windows Shells

I have used the Aston Shell Before and fell in love with it. Unfortunately it was only a 30 day trial. I downloaded a crack witch was supposed to make it the full version but still messed up after 30 days. Does anyone know any other windows shells that there are like the Aston Shell?
Thanks for the help

Or is there any websites with a crack that works for Aston Shell and has been tested?

Using those so-called cracks is against site policy, but here's an alternative... its called blackbox. Works awesome on a pIII 900 Mhz with 128 MB RAM

Hey check it out dude, i have two things for ya, first a sort of warning, DO NOT ASK FOR, PROVIDE, OR POST ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH CRACKS OR WAREZ ON THIS WEBSITE.........read the rules

2nd, as for different shell types, try out litestep. it is so much fun and customizable but you have to have a little patience, and you can learn to make your own shells doing simple coding and simple graphics editing. I have 1 litestep shell that i created and published on www.jaksback.deviantart.com, attached is my current shell project:

The lightstep is too complicated for me right now even though I know if I took the time I could figure it out. i am very good at customizing and configuring things like this but there are too many things to start with and I would like to have a guide since I am not that into this LITESTEP. It can make nice looking themes and they look like they have great functionality but for now i'll use Aston's Shell
