I learned some time ago that some antivirus programs would pick this program up as a virus. It's because it modifies the Windows shell. Some virus scanners think, for good reason, that this is bad. It is bad, if the person intends to be malicious with your system. So, it is picked up as a virus. Rest assured, I don't plan on hurting any computers that aren't my own.

For the missing/damaged archive message, it is possible that either your download did not complete fully, for some reason, or the antivirus you used removed one of the files in the archive. I suggest deleting the old copy and redownloading it. Try it then, and tell me if it works. If not, I'll give you the files seperately.

As for the glass effect, that had been a goal for quite a while, but I found that it wasn't possible with AutoHotKey, the programming language I used to code the program. It hasn't been updated for Windows 7, and I don't have a computer that can handle Aero effects, so I cannot do this. Sorry.

Well, hope this helps.

Sorry, I didn't understand that was well as I'd like to.. but I think you asked where the .ini file was? If that's the case, it's in your Documents folder.

Delete the systemtransparency.ini file in your Documents folder, and then run the program again.

Hi I would like to request for a context menu app (like moo0 right-clicker) that has browser integration and also adds effects (font, font color, transparency, menu color) to it so that it will have limitless customisation not like moo0 right-clicker which has only skins. and maybe also add their WindowsMenuPlus to the context menu but with a twist so that it won't be just the same application. btw, thank you for the super great application! i was just wondering if there is any possibility of applying transparency to a specific app and if you reboot your setting for that specific program will be the same when you relaunch it? i have tried it on LogMeIn software but it doesn't work? if it doesn't have that feature can you please add it? and please add a drag and drop option so that a specific icon or popup/notification type from the program would be the only one set to a certain transparency not the whole program itself. i don't know if my suggestions are possible. after all, they are just ideas.

Well, I really hate to say it, but my knowledge with AHK isn't that extensive. But you have some awesome suggestions. I'm taking notes as I type.

Maybe someday when I have the time to get back to programming, and when I have knowledge of a language that's a bit more powerful, I'll attempt to remake this program and add features like those. But for now, I don't have the time.

Humph, these silly forums say that I don't have enough privileges to download this.
Looks ace though!
