This is a bit off topic but You said you have dreamscene x64, how did you unlock that?

It's for non ultimate vista but it works perfectly on my 7 x64 so good luck mate
Anyone have any more ideas on the snap problem? There must be a way to turn it off and on in the os.

I downloaded and installed it and I got it to work but it seemed to make everything a bit unstable and I found that if I wanted to go back to my normal wallpaper I would need to log off and then log on again.

Also my sidebar went all funny and put my gadgets all over the screen, so I did a System Restore and its all good now. Anyway just thought I would let you know in case you are having problems that might be related.

I have found that that dreamscene causes quite a few upsets. Uninstalled mine and everything back to normal.

Thanks for the feeback mate. However my snap stopped after all my software was installed. It's strange about the dreamscene problem, the only problem i found was to get the vid to whole screen size but i found that just reapplying the vid a couple of time fixed this.

Aero Snap question.
I am only able to snap windows to the left or right side of the screen. Dragging a window to the top maximizes it again. I thought I read somewhere that with Aero Snap you could snap to the four corners so that if you wanted you could have four windows one in each corner. I can't seem to do that....

Has anyone else noticed this. I often like to have my windows a tall as I can so I can see as much of a page a possible without having them maximized.
