Windows 7: Multiple Questions (Involves Customization of Windows 7)

25 Nov 2012   #31

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

No problem. Glad I could help ^.^

So far so good. The only thing that I can't tell if it's normal or not is the screen flashing black after logging in. Not the fade through black but a sudden flash. Not really a big deal though. I'm just a perfectionist...and possibly OCD...I am going to browse the msconfig right now to see what is booting up. I just finished installing the programs I frequently use (more bloatware ;D).

As for 3rd party themes, I did see some stuff posted on here and went with a theme a user was using at that time. I'm not really sure though. I tend to like dark backgrounds with light words (opposite of what windows provides) and some of the custom icons people use are cool. Did you customize the look of your PCs? If so, with what/how?

I wrote in Post 20 how I customize all of my installs using the Win7 Aero theme and slideshow of the most spectacular pictures ever taken, the combined backgrounds of all Win7 National Editions. I suggest you try that to see if it's satisfactory because everyone has raved about it so far.

A black screen flash at the Welcome screen is normal. It might be remedied some by paring Startups to the bone which is best for performance anyway.

Ah ok. I meant if you customized your "skins" or something. I might tinker with the aero skin and see if I can get what I'm looking for. (Also with windows colors) I'm not generally one who uses scenery and such as desktop backgrounds thanks though!

I tried to do a little with custom themes, but some of the themes wouldn't completely change the desktop so I'm not sure where I will end up this time. Might create a restore point and try dark mango again xD

As I said we have a Customization forum which has experts on this and can assure the theme is safe.

Yes sir. I've browsed it a bit before. I think I'll go into more detail this time and possibly ask questions since i have an account now.

I will leave this open just in case my computer explodes ^.^

So far so good, thanks for the tip with the clean reinstall greg.
