    I have an new HP Pavilion with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, and I’m sorry to be the one to tell you but the changer does “NOT” work on it. It errors all over itself! It changes all the folder views, it changes all the icon sizes, you name it, and it changes it!Everything except what it’s supposed to! Sorry but even though it’s free, you couldn’t give it to me! It ruined my new HP! And it done it all on it’s own!!! I just clicked on the folder to enter it and got an error, I closed the error and the exe file ran! So I went ahead and tried to change the background since it was up and finally going. It wouldn’t change the color, or the font color, or the background picture either, it wouldn’t do anything but spit out errer after error! It’s a shame too, I would absolutely love the progran if it would work.

    Thanks anyway,
