    If you haven't tried actually shutting down, and going through the whole restore to a different time period process, you should do that whole deal. If not, sorry. By the way, People, Messaging, and Mail will also likely not work for you. Have fun!

    As far as I'm aware, the application doesn't actually install anything, it just modifies the appropriate files to make the changes to Metro. as far as breaking Metro applications, unfortunately, this is a known problem that has affected some people. I mentioned it before in this thread.

    I didn't used any of the affected apps. But yes I saw that calendar doesn't work, its' true.
    I did say that the screen customizer (no doubt: it has bugs) crashed once (unhandled exception...) but I took the risk in further using it for the sake of the custom looks.
    It brakes some parts of metro but lucky for us not all of it. I'm still curious how/when someone will find a fix for this.
    So far the colors of start screen work as they should.
