    I'm using RocketDock and a modified uxtheme.dll so I can use custom-made XP themes.
    I'm currently using this theme Nion 3.

    Pretty up. No so much, I cut everything back to basics (no background win2k themes and layout) and seriously cut back whatever I can with whatever tools I have at my disposal.

    Whatever multiple desktop app there might be that is good this week (currently nvidia drivers work for me).

    I may look into finding a method to use blinds as I got used to it when this machine was down and I was stuck with a linux machine.

    Currently sporting xoblite/bblean as explorer has crashed and I can not be bothered to restart.

    Only two things I use is VirtuaWin and Launchy to handle my desktop.

    Also, your tuneup winstyler will likely work after a reinstall. Installing SP3 will replace the UXtheme.dll. So it needs to be patched or replaced again before non-ms visual styles can be applied again.

    I also use Launchy because it's the best! [​IMG]
