I've just tried it, works fine for me, but think I'll have to apply custom theme or something, to much white around (if I decide to use pics for background). There was same program and for XP to, forgot the name.

Here's the two things most people don't do...............
1. Save the folder in Program Files (x86)
2. Run as Administrator.



Though this program had a tendency to screw up my folders every now and then. I'd have to restart and then redo the background. I actually recommend Folder Background - Change it is far easier to handle, and more stable.
