Doesn't get better than black and Dark reds. This has been a long time favorite, Rick.
On a scale of one to five, an obvious six plus.

Thanks Ghery!
Got the color scheme idea from a cherry '78 Corvette Indy Pace Car I spotted at a car show one weekend. Then, you can't go wrong with black, red, silver, huh?

Thanks Cindi!
Hope you enjoy it, my friend!

Oh come on,'s been out over six months, been downloaded over twenty thousand times on other sites and I've not had one single complaint. I'm sorry you crashed your computer but I seriously doubt it was because of this blind and I think you're giving it an impression that's not warrented or deserved...

Thanks windoe!
Yep, it's been around awhile but not here so thought I'd dust it off and release it. I made a few very minor alignment changes to it...nothing major...but hope you enjoy it, whatever version you use!

It's a UIS1 skin...that's the way I built it but once you apply the .wba file, it should load just like any other. I may add a full version...if you want to custom it to the width you want though, simply add the extra pixel width you want to the startpaneluserpane, startpanelplaceslist and startpanellogoff images in SS. I usually try to align 'em so you can resize 'em however you want and not still not lose any of the image's original integrity.
There shouldn't be anything wrong with the Winamp skin...simply click on the .wsz file and click yes to the winamp install dialog window. I just sat here and installed it half a dozen times myself right out of the .zip file (this machine didn't have that particular skin already installed) but didn't have any problems at all...

Nup no probs installing here both the wb and the skin for wmp my guess is the comps buggy if it crashes, and installing any other software will make it go to turdsville,start by scanning for viruses and spyware then do a registry clean with ccleaner then a defrag,make sure you select no page file before defragging then once defrag is finished reset page file(clik properties on "my computer" then clik ,"advanced tab", "settings button","advanced" and your there select no page file and restart and defrag. good luck

Great blind by the way

Thanks xscorpx!
Guess I sounded a little harsh in my earlier posts but over the years I've heard, "your theme crashed my computer" or "your theme gave me a virus" or a hundred other things a theme has done to someone that it tends to hit me the wrong way sometimes. Believe me, folks, I don't sit around dreaming up ways to damage, effect, infect or harm your computer in any way whatsoever...I just dream up ways to hopefully make your desktops look and behave better. And that's it, the full extent of my evil, diabolical plan...

same problem here with boost2. goes right to windows classic.
Comment #14 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 4:38 AM
No Navigatsio my friend. I din't complain. I think your works are as always great. But I have the same problem as Justin Rhoades said. Boost 2 changes my skin into classic Windows skin!.
I do not have any problem with my PC. It works perfectly with any oter skins until now!

Comment #15 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 9:14 AM
Good work.
Comment #16 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 10:41 AM
Navigatsio, looks great... a little bit over kill on the checkers for my taste (makes the background a little toooo busy), still a great skin
Comment #17 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 4:16 PM
And if I came off a little harsh, I humbly apologize, badblueboy. And complain away, that's how I know if something's wrong, it's just more helpful if I get specifics rather than a general statement...
Comment #18 Wednesday, October 11, 2006 4:21 PM
I'm going to look at it if I have time this evening but I swear it's loaded fine on my computers, my girlfriend's, and even a few of my co-workers. That's not saying it doesn't, it's just saying I can't personally replicate it. If anyone has any ideas why it would behave this way, please let me know...

Thanks kenwas!
I appreciate it, my friend!
