^ It will install new resource hungry apps which will obviously slow down your system.

I have to disappoint you that it won't degrade system performance. Why?

1. It can detect target's CPU speed and physical memory and setup appropriate applications that won't make PC significant slower
2. User need to acknowledge that they're going to install 3rd-party apps by clicking I agree that using it may slow down the system (just may though). If that user doesn't want to slow down, they won't use 3rd-party apps by default lol

Program doesn't force user to install them. If you don't want 3rd-party apps with this, you can just uncheck them easily. It's not wise to make 2 versions for separating 3rd-party applications considering many famous applications are trying to bundle toolbar now.

One thing i don`t understand: I`ve downloaded 7TP today again. The download still contains the old viglance. It is not a big deal to update this. Also many of the icons are still wrong. This is mostly VTP9 and still needs a lot of work.

Seven Transformation Pack 2.0 released

Well, it's finally here. Although Windows 7 RTM is coming near. However, I don't think waiting for Windows 7 RTM to be released first wouldn't be wise enough because there may be tons of changes and need another long delay again. This version is pretty much simple for bug fixes and some in-house updates like ViGlance. But why 2.0 instead of 1.0.1 or 1.1? Because there're some special updates in this release and it's just only beginning for me (though some people may aware of this and get bored already).

Seven Transformation Pack 2.0 Keynotes
Vista compatibilities - Starting from version 2.0, Seven Transformation Pack will support Windows Vista operating system and allow user to get Windows 7 experiences in Windows Vista. It will support XP/2003 and Windows Vista in same installation package for easy update and avoid conflicts. You may think file size is too large for Windows Vista user alone but please bear with it.

Bug fixes - some bugs found in previous releases are fixed. This includes clean uninstallation that will remove all installed features and tweaks for real this time. I tested it in Windows XP/2003/Vista and found everything removed properly. Bugs with incorrect icons are fixed also but I intentionly changed closed folder to ones specified in imageres.dll as proper closed folder regardless of Windows Vista/7 keep using opened for both. Vista Rainbar will not longer keep nagging full screen application and have memory leak issue resolved for long-time use.

ViGlance improvements - This is our MVP in this release. You will get the advanced version of ViGlance. It has Aero Peek feature showing live thumbnail on taskbar. You can pin application on taskbar as Windows 7. Options section is now available for ViGlance configuration and yeah.....it has superb graphics updated by Windows X that resembles Windows 7 RTM. The stability is improves a lot too and compatible with vertical taskbar and full screen apps.

Well, that's all for this version. Enjoy the release in Seven Transformation Pack page ;)

diono, what OS and security app are you using? It could be false positive report about scrnrdr (screen reader). Try disabling security app or run in safemode. I tested with Avira and it worked fine.

Good job, but explorer looks nothing like it does in Windows 7.
