Hell yea. It took like 2 seconds. I thought i was gonna have to go thru some steps. But no. Just Bam Bam.

My only problem i have left now is...my weather cant change to my city in that Signature Edition weather gadget. When i open options....i only see language and then 3 countries beneath that. After that...its all black from the themes color. There is one more option under the countries thing....but i cant read it. All black...i cant seem to type in it either. I tried to just start typing my city to see...no luck. If you or anyone know a secret to get my city in...would be appriciated. Thanks again bro.

This is what it looks like, there's really no options. someone else is going to have to play with it.
