    Cheers David,
    That worked like a charm. There must be a way to do it other than a third party prog though. I'm sure it can be done via the the registry somehow.

    Brink, did all that and still nothing. Looks like I'll be paying for this app in a week. lol. It must be able to be done, I presume this prog is tantamount to a macro to change the registry.

    David, another question. How did you get your screen to look the way it does? By that I mean the way a theme is carried throughout all of the screens and not just desktop.
