Download and use with caution,

remember is in beta stage still.

Please uninstall Tango Shell Patcher or Vize before installing this. It might screw your system up.

Report any bugs you might find, things you like and things you don't.

remember is in beta stage still.

You will find a shortcut in the start menu under KDE Vista Patcher.

Thanx to all and especially to XPero.

Oh, and BTW XPero check it and tell me if you would like to change anything.

this is a great program. love the ease of use.

(there was only one minor thing i didn't like - the HDD icons. i like the default better despite that it looks like an external driver rather than an internal drive.)
