    I was wondering what kinds of programs people use to customize their computer. I'm looking for a copy of Stardock's Object Desktop, or atleast Windowblinds4.1 and DesktopX if anyone has one. But I want to know if there are any free alternatives or something better. Let me know. B)

    Stylexp - for themes and stuff go Here, get a serial off kazaa, there is alos a program there to changge your XP login and boot screens. (for XP)

    For Icons - icon packager from here

    I cant think of anything else exspet for the powertoy from windows to change your wallpaper.

    Yeah thats a really good site I have windows but I decked out my comp to look like a mac hehe. And if you want to make it easier to get the serial number look up eclipse on kazaa then copy the harware number of the stylexp thing when it tells you to pay them money then paste it on the eclipse thinger then copy the number that it gives you from the eclipse thing and paste it on the stylexp thing. Hope you can understand that

    I'm usually not bothered too, but I have used StyleXP in the past, and found it to be a nice program overall.

    Forget installing the whole StyleXP program. There's a freely available .dll patch that allows you to use StyleXP visual styles just like you would the default XP styles.

    http://www.lightstar1.com/install.htm

    I'm using it and haven't had any problems.

    Actually, that is one thing that troubled me - For a program which is supposed to only affect the Windows API in a small way (check the White Sheet on the Stardock site), it uses a lot of resources on my PC

    I've had WB on my system twice (once to try WB and the other to try Object Desktop), and both times it has slowed down my PC significantly. I've put in StyleXP and I hardly ever notice it

    Besides, when it comes to theme sites I'd recommend ThemeXP (StyleXP supported) over WinCustomise (Stardock's WB Theme site) any day

    Ok well I guess I'm going to check out StyleXP but like I said if anyone has a hash or a torrent file for Stardock central I'd still like to see it =D.
