Default 1 thing I hate about vista

I hate that Vista changes themes when you run Java or Java based sites/programs like Limewire.

Anyone else find this annoyance?

It does it for VLC Player too, kinda annoying. Kinda funny how some programs don't work with a transparent bar surrounding the edge of the window.

Another annoying thing about Vista is defragmenting. I would at least like to know how far along my defragmenting is, and being able to choose which drives to defragment.

I don't have this problem with VLC Player.

What version of Vista are you using?

i got vista Home premium and have the same problem with vlc coz to play videos on vls you have to change it to direct X output which also makes it change .. another thing that changes the theme is going from single screen to dual screen (although thats simply coz it cnt handle the graphics i think)
