    I just scanned my computer and found 2 viruses from Style Xp(which is a program that gives you extra themes for your PC. Pretty cool). If anyone has this problem please give me some advice.+ I noticed my computer is going slower ever since I installed it. I have 512mb of RAM thinking of upgrading to 1gb RAM- is that going to help?

    Hi,

    Theres a lot of skins out there with malware bundled in, Its likely that you have become victim to one of theese infected skins.

    My advice, stick to Wincustomise for StyleXp & WindowBlinds skin's.

    styleXP and windowsblinds and any other windows skinning software results in a effect on system performance. if you want nice themes without the compromise of system performace look for [bold]uxtheme[/bold].

    http://users.bigpond.com/goran21/desktop.jpg

    you get nice looking desktop environments, without any resource penelty that 3rd party skinning software provides.

    That's waht i did.I dont use any kind of software.Just replaced the uxtheme.dll file and used the themes that you use for that kind of softwares.Virus-free forever.
