May I quote from the reviews.....'Why the author of this software altered files fundamental to the OS kernel just to apply a visual style is beyond me. It's my fault for deciding to run the software despite the numerous release-of-liability clicks the author inserted into the program (always a tip-off something's buggy).
Don't make the same mistake I did. Avoid this software, unless you want a several thousand dollar machine to become a paperweight in just ten minutes.'

I rest my case.

if you created a restore point , you could try it to see if it was worth keeping ?

It alters the basic kernel operating system. Why mess about for eye candy?

This programme is one of the most poorly written I've ever clapped eye's on and by the author's admission. I installed this out of curiosity and as per G's first post every dialogue box that comes up tells you that if your machine dies, tough luck, you can't blame me cos i told you so. Whilst it didn't give me any install problems, I simply didn't like it, removing it became a file-by-file nightmare.

One message in particular bears a stark warning, with the words 'screw up your system files'. That and the fact the guys english ain't to hot should make anyone give this a full on US 8 lane wide birth. Pass it by and get your eye candy elsewhere.

to give this software the widest berth possible. I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole - as my Texan client is apt to say.
