    Anyone know any good sites to get some free desktop designs?? Want something different than the norm. I was on the thread "post your desktops" and seen some really good ones on there. Anyone able to help?

    If you have Windows Vista Ultimate as your OS (and a suitably powerful PC) I highly recommend Windows DreamScenes - They're pretty, and I like pretty things :p

    If you wish to find out more then here's the link - Windows DreamScenes

    Enjoy

    .wba file is an extension for StarDock WindowBlind, you'll need to install that software...plus side it's easy to do when you have it downside is that it don't come free

    Thanks to you Qs, i decided to check them out and yes they are definitely *pretty* (eye candy) but, according to my two CPU monitor gadgets, when they are running my CPU usage jumps from about 3% whilst idling up to hovering around 30% per core.. to me thats too resource greedy to make the eye candy a viable addition :eek:

    Anyways, i prefer my eye candy to have big blue eyes, long blonde hair and be able to sing like an angel.. no not you BM!!! :tune
