    I tried the install 5 times, no 'Personalization'


    Sir,

    I tried the download version "
    OPTION TWO
    Using the "Personalization Panel" Program
    5 times and I have cold booted; I do not get any 'Personalization' selection when I right click on the desktop. I even went to 'Control Panel' and looked there, but no changes there.
    BTW The link you gave does have a newer version there called 'Personalization Panel 2.5'.

    any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you, mvtews Texas

    Hello mvtews, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    When you installed "Personalization Panel", it sounds like you may have used the portable mode option when installing instead of the Regular setup option. Try reinstalling using the Regular setup option to see if that helps.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hiyya Shawn I have downloaded that second option and I am getting something called WINAERO. Have downloaded it but nothing happens when I go to the desktop - oh it's next door's young fellows machine with the Starter 7 and I have cleaned up a fair bit whoever set this up for him didn't do a very good job - not that I am any expert but it is pretty ordinary,.

    Just don't know where to go from here.

    Hello John,

    Yep, that would be correct. WinAero is the site to download the Personalization Panel program from. You'll want to click on the gray download button at the bottom of the description of the program before the posted comments at that site. That's all. :)

    Ok Shawn have done that about four times now and it eventually went to a window that didn't seem to do anything until I noticed the flashing OK button on the taskbar instead of the pop up account user one - so hard to miss and the sound on this little device is so quiet and I am pretty deaf LOL!! that I missed the warning dum dum!

    Anyway all is well and the young bloke now has penguins on his machine - thanks yet again! He is going to be over the moon when he gets back from school!

    I just don't know how you keep up with all this unless you work from home and have ten kids all working for you LOL!!

    Now back to the endless updates - gee this machine has never been updated and being so slow - a major job.

    You're always welcome John. Anytime.

    LOL, it is always funny when a system messes up like that to find out that it has never been updated or had any maintenance done to it. :)

    Yeah Shawn was up to 1am this morning updating - even SP1 and boy if you thought Vista was slow then you should ry one of these little Atom 1GB based machines LOL!!
    Anyway I have been given some old M51 ThinkCentres and I am going to do up one for the young bloke as that err machine he has is good for starters (no pun) and it doesn't have an optical drive and thats a stumbling block eh?

    Just as a by the by I am no expert but whoever set this little machine up I reckon didn't know much about what they were doing.

    Anyway he's like the dog with two tails - which one to wag first LOL!!

    It worked!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!


    I have been wanting to change my desktop background on my laptop for a year and a half but didn't want to spend the money on upgrading my Windows 7 since that is the ONLY thing I wanted. So glad I found this thread; I downloaded the "Personalization Panel" and got exactly what I wanted. You are awesome!!
