    Of the ones mentioned, InterfaceLIFT probably has some of the highest quality desktops (IMHO). And as iNeedToSwitch mentioned, there's a monthly "post your desktop" thread in the Picture Gallery forum. It's always a great resource for finding desktops!

    Omg i really p****ed off. I downloaded one of the themes from link 2 but i needed something called uxtheme.dll
    so i downloaded it and now my taskbar at the bottom is in the old windows style. Ive tried everything to change it and tried to delete the uxtheme but it will not let me delete it saying that it is already in use. I went to the taskmanager to see if i could close it but its not there.

    As far as I know, the themes on InterfaceLIFT require the use of ShapeShifter, which a program put out by Unsanity.

    The URL for the program can be found here: http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/shapeshifter



    ?? I just reread your post....and are you using a Windows machine?

    :mad: Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......

    That scared the hell out of me.:eek:

    I clicked on the link to open it in a new tab and forgot bout it There were already 10-12 tabs open. And suddenly I was hearing some very low noise. I was scared to death. I`d read bout MB`s mooing. I was more than happy to find mine didnt moo. But NOW I was hearing exactly the same noise. I turned off my TV hoping that the sound was coming from the TV instead. But that didnt help.

    Suddenly the sound stopped. But only for 3 seconds. After that I could hear it again. It was definitely coming from tha Mb only.:( .

    Then I turned down the MB`s sound and thank God the noise was gone. I clicked on the Link 1 TAB and closed it. There was no noise whatsoever anymore.

    Huh. What a relief.:)
