Never mind the background! It's working gr8 on the browsers now! I'm gonna test drive it for a while and get back to you if either everything is gr8 or i have any other doubts.

Only thing i want to remove is the infinity pics in the shell32.dll folder, but i don't know if i merely can delete them... Everything else looks gr8.


Cumpz!

I spoke too soon..
I'm still having problems with my backgrounds/fonts colors.. Notice the light gray default font color. Can you solve problems like these without changing the font color?
The main issue is that for me to use black fonts in these apps, i need to have my background to white, otherwise it won't make sense..


Thanx again!

Thanx 4 the useful info booh, but that issue was already resolved.

In the spirit of moving forward, the current issues in hand are background and font colors affecting other apps, and not having a decent icon soft to manipulate my system icons.
I must admit i still didn't get the time to read all links provided by Bongo, but any additional info provided is appreciated.

Thanx!
Cumpz!

Most likely it is a browser issue not the theme.
Are you using BlackGlassEnhanced.exe with this theme?
You may want to remove the one screen shot with joana's e-mail address showing.

Go to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Infiniti\shell32.dll And edit or replace 633.png I have already edited that .png and put it in the .rar if you would like to use it.

Thanx 4 the tip, didn't noticed the email..
Not using BGE. The problem is not restricted to browser, actually i felt more difference in WinLiveMsn (like it was showing in the deleted PrtSc), but all other apps that use blank background, it's a problem, cuz the font appears in light gray(hard to read). Only solution i see viable is blank background, unless you have a tip for me.

Thanx!
I'll be out for a few hours, but will reply ASAP.

I did not use WinLiveMsn So if you could give me some examples of the other apps that I could download and test let me know.
