Style XP i used for a long while, i noticed your problem once or twice i just went into task manager closed explorer.exe then started it back up from the run window. A reinstall usually fixes the problem though.
At the moment i use aston, its the most functional of the skinning programs, and it is also the easiest on system resources being more efficient that the standard windows themes/skins.

Well, so you are saying that WindowsBlinds isn't worth using, eh???
Kk, and that Aston seems interesting and pretty cool.. How has it been working since you started using it? I don't know if I totally want to use it because since it's not explorer, I'll be using and stuff like that? How does it totally work? If you could give me some input on that and what not, that'd be great! thanks..

Aston has been great, its improved my startup time alot, the gap from windows starting and being logged in to it beinf usable has gone down for at least a minute to about 20 seconds running aston so performance has had a big boost from it.
It doesnt actually skin the windows though just the desktop so the problems you sometimes got with style xp and window blinds where some applications and windows were wrong sized arent there.
The drop down menus are really handy and the range of widgets availbale is good(although it takes a while to figure out how to use them.
I use it because of its ease of use with the drop down categories along the top and the improvement in performance, i havent had any problems with it since ive used it, i tried it a while ago and didnt fancy it because you do have to customize it a bit to your needs the drop down menus need made changed to have your things in them so i went to style xp but i got fed up of style xp and went back and when i had it configured i really liked it and i havent went back. There is plenty skins for it but i like the standard skins that come with it best.
