  1. Icons in 256 colors for pre-XP windows OSes

    If you've been wondering why certain icons in the system look awfull in any Windows OS before XP, it's simply because they will only & always use 16 colors to display those icons ( XP can use up to 256 colors ).

    Want to have some nice system tray icons too ??? :D

    Windows Explorer Patch

    I've installed it right now & so far no problems with it. I'll play around with it & if there's anything worth mentionning in here, I will. If you have problems with it, post the problem here.

    PS. If you do not feel comfortable playing around with the explorer.exe file, do not use this trick. I will not be held responsible for any damage that might occur due to using this trick. Only MrG can be held liable.;)
