IS there a reg edit that allows you to change the color of the start bar to say, black. I know you can change it by dl a program, but is there a way were I could just do it by entering somthing in my Registry?

I could be wrong but I think that is done through themes which replaces the actuall objects. Maybe someone else knows the answer

Yes, there's a way. You need to use a custom Windows theme. check out www.themexp.org and look for anything about a special .dll fix or a program called StyleXP.

what did they do to the screensavers lol. I was a little mad when G4 pushed there way in!! Folow those directions r4d1c4l.. StyleXp is good but if you dont want the adaware on your pc and not have to register anything it is so much better to do it yourself!

Edit Warning Editing the registry is a dangerous thing. I suggest if you do not know what your doing keep out of the registry. One wrong mityped error could and will cause you to have to reinstall window's!
