    And remade it to behave like the older version of Windows. Now it looks all classic and I now have 4 hours on max power settings (the one that's supposed to trash my battery life). That's 4 hours I can play StarCraft 2 without plugging in.
    Your bitterness, I will dispel

    Windows look's a lot better, and easier when Aero is on, then it is off, but your computer, your decision

    Means that he shut down the special effects of the desktop that make W7 aesthetically better looking and decreased power cost to his laptop.
    It's another one of those topics where we're suppose to be in awe at his technical know-how.

    Ayy lmao

    is it okay for me to ask how u did that? 'cause all my systems came pre-loaded with win7...for the desktops its not an issue but i'd love to improve my battery time for my laptop.

    I use the Windows Classic theme. All that fancy stuff is stupid.

    I want a theme which makes Windows 7 work like 3.1.

    My only thought about it all is hope you got the home edition of windows 7 then, i got the ultimate for all the aero and bitlocker programs and features.
    I am an old gamer and i need my trainers to help me complete them these days so i have started to look at what trainer options i have for my games and Cheat happens tend to not disappoint so thank you for the game enjoyment i can still have.
