Did you get a message when you loaded it stating that not all the start menu can be displayed. I'm not sure what the exact message says, but something like that.

I had that happen to me when the content margins on the highlight were too large. Check all the top and bottom content margins related to the start panel. Maybe making them smaller will solve the problem.

Maybe a dumb ? but did you set both sets of sizes XP & Vista

Also I had a similar issue with the Halloween skin we did. open it and look at the sizing margins in the user pane sometimes a really tall userpane can cuase some issues

Does it apply correctly in Vista?

I'd be glad to help in any way!!

actually harely, i thought about it, and decided that if it works on yr xp , then it should be working on mine...so ive updated every update i can find on microsoft updates, restarted my pc, then got a message that wb wasnt installing properly, so i uninstalled my zone alarm, downloaded zapper, used that to delete wb and sk, deleted all the wb files ect, restarted and now am currently downloading wb again, and then sk, hopefully this will help me some! ...

and yeah....those shells were not working....btw i noticed that the toolbar icons in yr shot you sent me were all off scew and not centred?/ gah! cant have this happening, ill look into that......

ill post and update when ive completed my downloads ect.

......and thankyou Harley.....you know i luvs ya (polar bear huggles)
