Vistapack 2.6 released

Vistapack 2.6

The new version has arrived!!

Description:

The Vistapack is made to transform your old and boring Windows 2000 rig in a modern looking and feeling OS.

Safety:

It takes the files from the host, backs it up, modifies a sample and puts the modified file back in the system.

This ensures that you are using the latest files so no need for alerts like "Now I am using an old file, what if its updated by m$? Then i will be open for attack..."

Nope, no need to worry. You keep the updated file.

The pack uses ResHacker to change icons, bitmaps and some dialogs, to make it look like the new Windows Vista!

Its rather safe in my opinion, but of course there are some risks when you modify system files.

This is at your own risk!!!

But no need to worry, there are few bugs that cause your pc not to boot or something.

Personally i did not had that happening here.

Of course, when you don't like it, you can uninstall the pack like any other software.

Send me the bugs you find or some remarks, just let me know.
