"Great program"

February 18, 2012  |  By lmanlo09

 |  Version: WindowFX 4.01

Pros

Nice effects, great to use when trying to have a window in view.

Cons

Nothing that I can see

Summary

I've been using this for a month now and it's been a great program, it has helped in some multitasking. Right now I'm using WindowFX 5 beta. Has better and newer features than the 4 edition and has a better use.

"Useless 10 characters"

July 08, 2011  |  By m0n0lyth

 |  Version: WindowFX 4.0

Pros

None 10 characters... jesus...

Cons

Downloaded and installed for the first time, started the program only to find that the 30 day trial is already expired. I know I didn't instantly time travel. I think it's safe to say that this is the most useless download you'll ever consider.

Summary

Absolute junk.

Pros

Everything! Performance, the look, and the packed features.

Nothing I can think of.

If you want Vista-like Aero effects on your older OS, and you have a really crappy computer, go for this, it works like a charm! I give it 5 stars!

"lame effects not worth having"

October 23, 2008  |  By brianthesnail123

 |  Version: WindowFX 3.0

Pros

may impress your mates

Cons

very buggy,after you uninstall a reboot is required(but not prompted) for full and proper removal,without the reboot your desktop may freeze.
the effects in windows fx have no real function and cause more harm than good

Summary

in reflection windows fx isnt really needed,it serves little or no purpose in windows xp and can damage system files in some cases
however if you want to use it i strongly advise you create a "restore point" before installing it incase anything goes wrong !

"Fun!"

August 08, 2008  |  By GhostMale66

 |  Version: WindowFX 3.0

Pros

Sometimes it's the little things that can make a big impact. The software adds just a little bit of 'eye candy' to the otherwise normal, boring Desktop. (Makes the windows act just like they do in Vista.) It's definitely something that I'd recommend for a system that has a good graphics card and a lot of memory.

Cons

The program kept crashing on me whenever I tried to adjust settings for the minimizing and maximizing of the windows. Other than that, everything else seems to be working just fine.
