Editors' Review

+

This is app is extremely simple, but performs an essential and possibly complicated task for Windows Vista customizers. It patches several DLLs that control Vista's appearance so that users can alter Vista to their liking. It's also freeware, making it a viable workaround for those who want to tweak Vista but don't want to pay for it. It also changes Aero so that it stays in effect on maximized screens.

There's not much else to the program. It absolutely will not work with Vista Service Pack 1 Release Candidates. If you install Vista Glazz before removing the SP1 RC, simply uninstall the app and then SP1, and then reinstall the program. The interface is basic, there are no skins provided, and the EULA gives off the vague stench of unfounded fear.

Nevertheless, if you're looking for a simple solution to a potential nightmare, Vista Glazz may be the first step you'll need to take to pretty up Vista just the way you want.

"WARNING WARNING WARNING"

August 09, 2011  |  By mhs420

 |  Version: VistaGlazz 2.4

Pros

looks like it would be nice to have

Cons

Cnet does not run extensive testing of programs be fore they advertise them. Will cause more problems than it's worth.

Summary

If you can afford to take your pc in for repairs constantly or can afford to buy a new pc every time a program here is advertised go ahead and download. I'm no expert but had to do a complete reinstall of my sys (vista) after trying this program. It crashed my system and other times stopped my pc from responding. Restore system does NOT remove the program since files are still hidden deep in the system. People who Do not put products through extensive testing, are usually affiliated in some way with the product. So many program on Cnet have turned out to be highly infect even tho Cnet claims otherwise. I use My olde computer to check programs before allowing them on my New win7, so far I have been highly disappointed with Cnet. the call free trials FREE and not trial as the programs truly are. Some are free but they don't tell you features are not avaible unless you upgrade. Do I have a problem with Cnet? yup sure do... They falsely advertise programs and talk about programs as if everyone is a freaking expert!! I've been arou computers since 82. I have no problem admitting I'm no expert. Technical terms are b.s.
