Very nice, but I am to terrified of replacing files. o-o Last time I did it, my pc would not log in. xD So I decided to never do it again. That is why i will just buy Windows 8 Pro. xD

If you are really interested in customizing your OS, i recommend to install a dual boot system. So you always have a working system if something is going wrong. You can use one OS to repair the other one.

I normally use Virtual box, because I don't know how to dual boot. O.o

Yepp. Try VMwareplayer free. It is faster, more stable and easier to install VMs. I needed years to recognize it, but i never regret it.

I think so. It's free, so there is no risk to try it. Easier to handle and more stability.

That's true. It is only to make the transformation complete. I always try to come as close as possible to the original.:)

That's a good question.When you make your OS to look like another OS this is a little detail to make the fake perfect. It doesn't really make sense, it's just for fun.:)

Ah, fun! I've heard of that, perhaps I should try it sometime :D

I changed over to Linux Ubuntu a little while ago, so nothing looks the way I'm used to anyways.

Ubuntu is real easy to learn, and I don't like Vista or Win7, so I might as well do the transition before XP becomes entirely obsolete.

or try arch linux. it makes you actually learn about your system.

and in 7955, windows is genuine if you activate it using beta serials.

The red text also has a strange background. can I fix it?
Reply
:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
It can be fixed, only it is hard to explain, because my english is not so good.I've inserted a bitmap in the dll.That's the reason why it looks a bit different.It's a common problem of such stuff.Rightclick your desktop choose properties, than appearence.Select advanced, than 3D objects from the drop down menu.Click on first colour, than select others.You will see a menu which shows your settings. Mostly RGB 244 244 244. Change it a little to match the colour of the background. This also fixes problems of the most shell32 dlls. Hopefully i found the correct words to make it understandable.

Normally that's a good way. Only this is not a static image.It's no fake, it really changes your systeminfo.Maybe i can change the code and insert a bitmap.Thanx for suggestion.:D

sid-crafty Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2011
Hey Peter, why not use the whole bitmap with the win8 logo and the text in red s an image replacing the win7 logo......so you won't have to edit the code......
then the dialog would consist only of one imge and the Text "Peter Rollar"
