First one is ok, but I have to find a FREE winrar. There all trialware. The second one, is risky. It has a warning on it on the forum. Ok I download the How to apply customs. I need patch 3 files from a box comes up. Don't know which one to do.

The second one is not risky a lot of this on here using that, but the first was okay to.
Look at the screenshot you'll need to patch all three and then restart your computer. Be sure to follow the guide.

It worked. Oley
The blue language bar icon color is gone too. Is there a way to make it yellow highlighted there? Also, the blue shadows how to get rid of it? The other problem is solved though.
