Vista Install Update

Ok, so far so good. Vista is running fine and I'm working on personalizations and tweaks.

If there's one thing that bugs me is that I cannot seem to figure out how to keep the cool Vista start button\black menu and change the Windows color. The oh-so-pretty blue just don't cut it. If you know where I can either find that tweak or download some freebie, drop me a comment or reply in the forums.

My news reader,
Great News works great from the XP partition.

I've gotten my MailWasherPro all set up but I still need to work out what I'm doing wrong with Outlook. Steven provided me some steps to open it from the Vista drive but I can't seem to get it just right yet.

I also need to see if that can be done with Expression Blend.

I've installed
Online Armour Firewall, so we'll see how that works. For av I'll likely go with one of the freebies, not sure which one yet tho.

So today will be spent working out those things and other settings. Thanksfully Jr has a playdate with a pal after school, so I'll have a good amount of time to do all this.
