Windows 7 Ultimate RTM
Project: Windows Seven Basic Themes: Virtual Aero

Reccently i have tryed to hack my PC like crazy to get the Aero Affects of Windows Seven, I have a intel 915 gfx and it dose not support WDDM (becuase intel is lazy..). I was not successful at hacking aero but on my attempts i was able to do some modding...

My Results:
  1. Windows Royal Theme - This made 7's basic theme look way better.
  2. Transparent Windows - Made all the windows tranparent... Without aero.
PROBLEM: Now... To make the Aero Style complete the "Preview Thumbnails" in the taskbar are needed. I have tryed many 3rd party programs but i was not successful... (You might have seen in my other post).

I was thinking of making a program like this with Visual Studios (.net 4) that could work on 7. But this has a problem... The Basic "Alternitve" to window previews (attached Picture). That needs to go... or some how be modifyed...

I have got 2 of this down. Dose anyone have and suggestions for the problem?
