I guess that is the easy way instead of working the group policies and registry hacks.

I don't agree... If you have seen a Tweaking program that can teach you how to hack WEI score? or even modify and customize Screensaver in 2 clicks? My favorite is customizing the shortcut icon overlay. Here's another, 3 ways to TURN off Aero. How about Hiding the shutdown button and it's options?

Please post it here if you have. so that other user's can choose... and try the other tweaking programs (FREE).
Please Don't say bad things about other people. That's what WinMatrix Unique from other community.
WinMatrix Rocks!

It is not a perfect program but certainly it is useful to me. I'm looking forward for more development of this program.

thousands? Please post... WINDOWS VISTA ONLY

Seems all people here are very friendly...and very supportive to new ideas.

Anyway, I tried to Hack Winbubble.

I changed the icon "customize.ico" in the \icon folder.
it works!

1. rename it, for example: customizebackup.ico
2. create an icon that is located to the left-downside. Be sure that it will NOT cover the original icon.
3. rename it to "customize.ico"
4. open Winbubble

I'll post some images later.

Anyway, it's easy to restore. just choose "default" and set
