    I figured that some personalization would be nice. So I started looking at Candybar, but the only thing holding me off is the chance that it might slow down my MBP.

    Does Candybar continuously run and use up resources, or do you run the program, make the changes, the program writes those changes and then quit the program without it running in the background?

    Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

    No it's not like the windows shell replacements like Object Desktop etc. It's just an easy way to manage, replace, and restore icons, etc.

    Once it's quit, it's quit, no process running in background.

    I use it myself. When I find an icon I like I can easily change it then quit CandyBar.

    I'm not sure if this is due to candybar, but when I installed candybar and activated new icons, my 2007 MacBook seemed to slow down. I'm not 100% sure it was candybar that did it, but it seemed to slow almost immediately after candybar was in action (even while candybar was closed).

    hopefully this helps anyone trying to make a decision on whether or not you want to have badass icons.
