Get rid of those little stupid shortcut arrows over the icons ( http://www.goldenweb.it/software/immagini/icone/sistemi_operativi/oS2_2/Shortcut%20Overlay.gif ) so that you can see them (the cool custom icons, that is) better!

I always do, and I don't even use custom icons! I can't stand seeing those things. They always make all your icons look goofy.

The most troubling item on that desktop is a folder labled "David Hasslehoff" :eek:

Is it a folder containing images of him? MP3s of his music? Or videos of him "in action"?

(And I can't really decide which is most disturbing to contemplate! Perhaps it is all of the above! A veritable orgy of Hasslehoff-related media! Oh, the horror! The humanity!)

You have to understand the humor of Sivy, he's been a valuble swampie for almost 3 years. He has kept it both real an entertaining. THIS is the true next generation of Star Wars fans. The ones that can keep it real, AND not take things too seriously. These are the fans that we want, the fans that go places, and still make time to entertain the rest. Not ALL Star Wars fans are ABSOLUTE geeks, and even the ones that are, NEVER take things TOO seriously. We are not like trekkies. We don't care how things work, we are in it for the story wich is all about good VS evil, and we LOVE to watch it unfold.

*Shrugs* Sorry guys...

Always works for me... and avoids all that nasty mucking about in the registry like with Regedit. The program does a LOT of other REALLY useful things as well. It's always one of the first things I install.

You didn't accidently download the 64-bit version did'ya Grooves? I did that once by mistake.

If you ever do happen to get it working, then you just have to go into the program, click on the "Explorer" tab, then to "Shortcut" and set the "Shortcut Overlay" to 'None.' No more arrows! :)

Hmmm... dunno.

Maybe there's some system-wide security setting that this conflicts with. Maybe shut off any real-time protection stuff (like Norton SystemWorks or something similar) temporarily when you try it. Sounds like something's keeping you from writing a new registry value.

Are you on as an Administrator account when you try it?

I've never had a problem with it at all on a bunch of different computers.

Very strange...

I finally made it work. I dunno how or what made me think of this, but I basically deleted all but a few of my icons, ran it, then restored my original icons. Then it worked. Looked so good, I wound up pimping my desktop for a couple of hours. Check this out now, and note my groovy new winamp skin!

I can't seem to find the right one... :/

Hmm, now that I look at it, I can't seem to find that specific one either. I'll look into it some more and see if I can figure it out. I know that on my old system with Win98, I could change the text color to black...
