I just loaded a new theme yesterday, and I'm almost certain that I see better performance from Windows since doing it. Folders seem to open more quickly, icons seem to refresh faster, etc. I have not restarted my system and so it's not that things have been freshly loaded lately. I've never really seen it stated that certain themes might degrade system performance or vice versa, but it sure seems that this is the case. Possible?

some themes take up more memory than others... depending on your other resources this may or may not be the reason for slower performance in windows..

I believe it has to do with the images used when creating the theme with StyleBuilder. The themes that are faster and use less resources are usually the ones that were created using optimized images.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
