    Just ran across this over at Techspot.com. Works flawlessly and makes my desktop a little bit cleaner.

    Personally, I really like the 'clean' look.

    I should have tried this out on my G-ma's system this morning but totally forgot. Has anyone tried this with Vista even though I would assume most of us are going to Win 7, if not there already:pimp:.
