Hi Norm, I am running this on my Acer Aspire notebook with the following spec. I installed it on a 55GB partition dual booted with Vista Ultimate x64 SP2, talking about taking my life into my own hands.

As you can see System Info tool works perfectly in Windows 7 ---

"Curious as to what else was under Microsoft’s elaborate lock, key, and duct-tape protection scheme mentioned earlier, I had my friend Chris Holmes run a scan of his 7 system, as I’m still babying my laptop’s SSD drive. What we found were ties into system files littered across the entire operating system. Post-analysis revealed another feature tucked away in the corner – Say hello to (what I think should be called) Desktop Slideshow. If your memory is sharp, you’ll remember Long Zheng found mention of this very feature on MSDN first, of which was quickly sanitized by Sinofsky’s secret police."

"Okay, where’s the “unprotect” tool for this now?

I’m reworking the existing tool to be easier to use and to unlock all known protected features in the various files across the operating system. Stay tuned, I should have something available tomorrow if I don’t get shot at the polls."

So desktop slideshow is a wallpaper changer? At least it will do away with third party apps.

I put it on my laptop, Dell XPS M1330 and it makes a weird sound problem when I turn on the computer it makes a crackling sound when it plays sound. So I think it might be from the upgrade I did from Vista.. Going to try to reinstall it from scratch, I can't wait for first beta since signups will be added to Microsoft Connect
