Anyone here knows how to edit the .ini file for the rainmeter? I have a CPU skin however it's displaying the wrong name of my CPU but it's displaying the right clock speeds. My CPU name is "Pentium® Dual Core CPU E6700 Wolfdale", the pictures tells me that I have an i7 920, XD, I don't even own an i7. Anyone here would like to help me? And Arc, is my background an inspiration that you changed your desktop back ground? If you're wondering why the background's color is a bit weird, my color depth is on 16-bit because some applications doesn't run on 32-bit.

Ok I'll bite...., Having just migrated over to Windows 7(64) from XP(32) First thing I did was set up the slideshow feature for desktops before anything else, I like the large transparent windows borders now in Windows 7, with Xp I reduced them to nothing to hide them, colour intensity is set to 0 as the taskbar looks nice when large transparent like this.
