    I think it's called Windows Blinds or something.

    I used to use ObjectDock, which was a pretty neat program to clear my desktop up. Like this: [​IMG]
    I'm guessing you want the Vista mod?

    I've got a free copy of vista comming as soon as it hits the shelves... come to think of it, it may be prudent to wait till I install that before installing a bunch of add ons.

    On your ObjectDock, did you prevent explorer.exe from running?

    Nope, I think you'r thinking that because my taskbar is missing?

    I took it to the top and made it to auto-hide incase I needed to use other programs. You can see the very tip of it at the top.

    .......and it's a pain in the ass to turn the computer off with task manager by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete.:mamoru:

    Are you talking about the Object Dock that costs $19.95 or is this a free download?

    There's a docklet available for ObjectDock that lets you get to the Start Menu without using the taskbar. Alternately, you can write VBScripts that act like each of the categories in the Start Menu, and then build your own Start Menu using any of the many menu docklets floating around. I chose the latter path back when I was using ObjectDock.
