Nice guide, I will try it out later.

Wasnt there an guide on how to customize your desktop back then? I think it was around the time I joined, or am I thinking of another forum?

Could make a poll whether it should be stickied?

Here is mine, it is a little different hehe..




btw you know what pisses me off with windows 7?? no matter what I do I cant get my OS to report the right CPU Frequency......the only place it shows it properly is in the BIOS and when it boots up in the information....

I have it overclocked to 3GHZ but it always says 2GHZ.....Windows XP reported it properly tho.......

You might want to download this: http://www.ziddu.com/download/309334...rmark.exe.html

It removes that Windows 7 Watermark so you could utilize your entire desktop.

I'm not sure, but I am sure that it's quite lightweight as I have not seen any decreases in performance.
