Ave's 3D UserPic Version2
Posted 29 June 2007 - 05:19 AM
In the old longhorn 4xxx days, the startmenu user picture was more animated as it was today. Today, we get a cheap alpha-fading effect when you hover over an item: the user picture simply blends with the icon for a while.
Back in the days, the user picture was actually rotating when you had the start menu opened. This application tries to achieve that effect.

+ stabilized the thing (less crashes)
+ Now changes the icon also when you hover over other startmenu items!
+ some extra rendering settings
+ Cooler and more longhorn-esque animation DONE thx to bryant
+ Add support for the browse-pane (the pane you get when you start search-typing)
+ some icons render with a smaller size. This is a limitation of the system and in my opinion a "bug". IImageList2::GetOriginalSize returns E_NOTIMPL, which means cannot get the original icon size since MS programmers did not implement that behaviour (yet). FIXED by Andreas with a workaround
This application injects code into explorer.exe, hooks into the startmenu windows and also uses internal data-structures which may result in extra crashes. Therefore, usage is on own risk.

Or download from here
Thanks Again to AndreasV

How can I completely uninstall it by removing the code?
This application injects code into explorer.exe
I'm not sure about that mate...! But I think if that is removed then explorer doesn shutdown properly so u get the error when u startup again..! That was fixed here.. But still has bugs
