I downloaded the Object Desktop for the PC (which basically changes the look of your desktop/icons/boot screen/etc.) and am using a trial version. (http://www.wincustomize.com)

I like it and the looks/skins I can download but I'm having a lot of program errors in programs like Internet Explorer / Windows Explorer / iTunes / etc. I don't know if one has to do with the other but since my system is brand new I'm just looking to place the blame. I'm running Windows XP Professional and it's completely updated but I'm still having a lot of program errors on a system that is starting with a clean slate.

I installed the Object Desktop not long after pulling the system out of the box so I'm wondering if it's the program or the computer that's wonky. (Or the operating system.)

Anyone have any good or bad experience with this application?

Yeah I found that problem with a lot of the designs. I finally found one that is great on the eyes.

I had trouble with ObjectDock doing strange things too so I switched to RocketDock.

Then I found this suggestion from a member (1101doc) here.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74436/the-best-desktop-ever/
This works very well for me and I have done away with all the dock programs. I now have 3 taskbars running.

Here is a desktop screenshot with 2 of the 3 taskbars showing.

(sorry about the desktop pic, it's the only screenshot I have with the taskbars showing.)

EDIT-
Just noticed that the program in question was Object Desktop not ObjectDock. Feel free to ignore my response.

Actually I'm using ObjectDock also so that was helpful.
