Slow and lagging

Sep 29, 2009 6:32 PM by Discussion: WindowBlinds

I have Windowblinds 7 build 204 x86.  Is it me, or it it slow all of the sudden.  Specifically, the start menu mouseover effect lags as you mouseover your pinned programs area.  It's just slower to highlight now and seems to lag.  Overall,all my themes seem less responsive and I've tweaked every setting available.  I had no issues with Windowblinds 6 and the first build or two of Windowblinds 7.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled as well.  Does anyone know of this issue or if it's been addressed?

 

Thanks!

Fix the all programs mouseover

Oct 3, 2007 3:15 PM by Discussion: WindowBlinds
There are several nice skins included with WB6.  However, I prefer not to use them because of the mouseover effect on the all programs located on the start menu. 

Is it not possible, after generations of Windowblinds, to actually make the "all programs" mouseover effect so that it's not a solid color as seen in so many skins? The non-attention to that detail has me using Aero more than WB6. 

At least some skinners try to avoid this glitch, such as

https://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=5814&libid=1 and https://www.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=6254&libid=1

Stardock should fix that small detail in the Windowblinds program, or more skinners would try to avoid it.  Please don't try to tell me why the mouseover effect happens...I already know and it needs to be fixed.

come on everybody

I suppose what I'm about to talk about would fall under the general OS customization category.

Personally, I'm kind of tired of seeing skins and icons made for XP and not Vista. Yes, I realize a lot of people still have XP. If we made less "stuff" for XP, maybe folks would be more willing to upgrade their systems. I know, I know...it costs $

I've moved on to a more advanced operating system. I need Windowblinds and icons for it!! Sure I have my old dusty XP disk standing by, just in case I really have problems with Vista. So far, I've had no real issues with the OS that I coulldn't fix myself. Most of the time it's my fault for messing things up and creating problems with my system, not the OS itself.

So, can we all just move on, buy Vista, and make some skins and icons for it??

Download Count

Just curious, why we don't get to see the download count on Master skins. We'd like to see how they stack-up, and also multiply the download cound by the cost of the skin and see how much money these skins are making. This might inspire some of us to become Master skinners!

Help with submission

Gents, I've submitted a theme called Windows Generations and I had to update the screenshot.  I looked for a "contact us" link on wincustomize, but couldn't find one.  I'm only asking for the newest file and screenshot to be posted.  Thanks!
