  1. Is this abandonware now?
  2. Ultra Uxtheme Patcher is not a virus. It is a program which replaces the orginal themeui.dll, UXInit.dll, and uxtheme.dll files in System32 with patched ones. It creates backups of your originals, and renames theme with a .bak extension. It is also reversable (uninstallable.) If you install Windows 10 in a VM, and run the patcher you can copy these files to a folder. Then, you do not need the patcher to replace them. Simply take ownership of the original files, rename, and replace them yourself. Of course, if you have no idea what you are doing, and do not follow other patching steps, or use the wrong themes for your build, you can definitely log on to an unusable desktop.
  3. OK, you are right. IE will continue to receive security updates, but IE 11 is the last version there will be.
  4. IE? That is not even supported any more. I say Chrome of course because in my opinion it is the most intuitive, fastest, easiest to use browser out there. I install a new OS at least once a week, and sometimes more for testing purposes. All I need do is run the installer, and the latest, greatest Chrome is installed. I then sign in, and all my extensions, bookmarks, passwords, everything are all there ready for me to use as if it were not even a new install. It is just simply awesome. Believe me, I have tested others, and found them all lacking. The only one with potential is Edge, but it is not a finished product yet. It is getting there though.
  5. Interesting. I use Chrome of course, and it downloads as a .7z file. I open it with WinRAR, and extract. Actually, I just right-click, and choose to extract. I do have a portable copy of 7zip, but I find it troublesome to use.
  6. No it is most definitely not.
  7. Or you can just click on the link, and it will download all by itself.
  8. What version of Windows are you running, and which update? I don't have any issues, but I am on the new Insiders Preview build 15007.
  9. Could you please state what build you are using from the Windows Version window. Type winver in the run dialog, and press OK. Also, please state what changes you do. The more specific you are the better we can help.
  10. What problems are you having. I applied your tweak, and did not notice anything unusual.
  11. [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM] "Composition"=dword:00000001 "ColorizationGlassAttribute"=dword:00000001 "AccentColor"=dword:ff000000 "ColorPrevalence"=dword:00000001 "EnableAeroPeek"=dword:00000001 "ColorizationColor"=dword:c4000000 "ColorizationColorBalance"=dword:00000059 "ColorizationAfterglow"=dword:c4000000 "ColorizationAfterglowBalance"=dword:0000000a "ColorizationBlurBalance"=dword:00000001 "EnableWindowColorization"=dword:00000001
  12. It is in Hyper-V! Not on my hard drive.
  13. Here you go! Clean install. Poison theme by Mr GRiM Running build 14393.321 with latest service pack update in Hyper-V.
  14. You sound angry.
  15. I never donated, but thanks anyway. I have it through other methods. It's been leaked in many different forums already! LOL
  16. Yea this is a bunch of crap. Total disrespect for testers. Bigmuscle can't even keep up with the Windows Updates anymore, now he is locking down his testing releases. What a bunch of bull.
  17. Well in your post http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/170375-oldnewexplorer-118/?do=findComment&comment=1128597 you said you could not disable the menu bar. Now you say there is no such thing as a menu bar. How can you not disable something that does not exist. But is does really exist, because I can enable or disable it on my system.
  18. Well this one sucks. All I can get for Windows borders is a blue color. I want black, so this version, unless there is a fix, is totally unusable.
  19. Even though this says it is for Windows 7, it is working in Windows 10. Scroll down to download the registry files. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/517-menu-bar-turn-off.html
  20. I am on build 14905, use ONE, never use classic shell, and can not reproduce the problem.
  21. see reply I sent you earlier.
  22. I learned something new!
  23. LOL, that works doesn't it!
  24. Well then I have no clue. I like the details pane anyway.
