Glass Notepad!!

Hey guys, I've got a neat little mod for windows here, it's Glass Notepad!!

It's the same exact notepad but a sleek new look. (Requires Aero)

You can download it right here at Deviantart.
It can be run right from where you download it to or you can replace it in windows,
located at C:\Windows\notepad.exe

Word to the wise, make a backup copy of the original, such as "notepad old".exe

If you cannot rename notepad.exe, that's because the computer thinks you don't own it and it's harmful if you change the name, which it isn't.

You can fix that by running the file in here, Add Take Ownership Option.rar
Then just right click notepad.exe and Take the Ownership of this File.

Crucial - The Memory Experts

I found this site a little while ago and figured i'd share

It's a site where you can buy cheap ram to upgrade your computers, they even have a scanner to tell you what to get to best optimize your PC.

They even partnered with another company to make a completely free program Called Crucial (Iolo) Memory Mechanic.

A fast an easy tool to free up ram on x86 machines.  Sorry, no 64 bit compatibility :( but it really doesn't need it anyway.

Add Custom Theming to Windows XP, Vista, and 7

Hello all, i'm gonna tell you guys how you can load custom themes on your windows machine, the only requirement is that it has to be windows XP or newer

Download the Universal Theme Patcher here.  It includes x86 and x64 versions.

Pretty much the patching in the program is self explanatory.

After rebooting you can find a lot of good themes at Deviantart which you will put in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

To apply the themes you downloaded, you just right click the desktop and click on Personalize and the rest is easy.
