Pic doesn't seem to be working, but I'm guessing it's pretty bad.

Thanks for the heads up Wes:)

Did you see the link RP posted? It shows a picture of his desktop with his taskbar and Windows Explorer blacked out, looks like they crashed or something. :(

Can't you just restart it? :confused:

Well, I guess so. You can also change the theme :p

No it might not be that simple. It could be a virus or something but I doubt that...

Most probably ill-packaged. :p
Looks like instead of a nice green, it's black and err yucky.
Oh well. :p
I stick to good old plain Windows ME.
Desktop Themes are the shiznit. :cool:

ME - Many Errors version of Windows, why even use it?! It's a cash cow they released, a half way step between 9x and XP....


Looks more like most of the colours have been changed to black, which makes most text impossible to read, unless you know what it says before hand.

Your stark raving mad aren't you? ME is the bastard sum of all that is teh suk about Microsoft. *shudders*


I couldn't really see what was going on in the pic, or maybe I am just getting old and blind.

Games now days are getting to be murder for the simple PC users. I prefer PC games to anything else, but it pisses me off that so many of them have such high requirements that, you have to have a high powered machine to run it. I think the PC game industry needs to re-think themselves, instead of caving in to hard core gamers.:rolleyes:

I can feel the hate rising in you now... :)

I don't think the gaming industry is caving in to hardcore gamers at all...in fact, I think it's quite the opposite. Hardcore gamers usually care more about the gameplay than the graphics (like me), but all the pretty sparkly effects attract more casual gamers to buy the games, IMHO. Anyway, I've resisted doing a major system upgrade for three years...the only thing I've upgraded is my graphics card and my hard disk. Anyway...back on topic...

As for that screen theme thingy...well, sorry to hear about your problem. I've had my own screen go funny a few times because of some stupid problem, and it sucks. Hope you can get it sorted, Wes.

Let me tell you of when I installed styleXP.

Every taskbar and little button in windows blacked out completely. I couldn't see where I was clicking, I could only see if a new window popped up.

Imagine disabling the damn thing when you're essentially blind - took many tries and lots of placement-memorization, but lexx and I got the job done in the end.

Bah, this is nothing compared to that harrowing experience. I'm still scarred this very day.

It's happened to me before, it took over an hour to sort it out. :(
