But at least with downloads the IE icon has an increasing green tint over it. (i don't know about FF if you use it )

I only use FF when I want to show off the cool Glass effect I used.

Actually, it's is not static.

I've just checked with a Media Player and a DVD. In both normal and minimized states, I get a "live" video thumbnail of Media Player. I'm using Windows 7 x64 Build 7100

Pity I can capture that to show you...

Installers can be a pain in the a$$ having to maximize all the time
It's looking like people haven't read this post, just the 1st one

I used this guide here. The file you download can be rewritten for other programs. I also got the FF glass effect here: https://www.sevenforums.com/customiza...ompletely.html
