    I've run mine to customize the Start Button for my Windows XP SkinPack.

    Thanks, Victek.
    (Why don't they have a thumbs-up button here?)

    Wow, this is shocking. Seems like it's becoming a trend to hack sites of popular software, and seems like they even have the skills to infect software.

    I tried it for a while, but I prefer Start10.

    I prefer Start10 as well, but it's a paid product (granted it doesn't cost much) and Classic Shell is free.

    Thanks, I read about it. But if I understood correctly, they didn't infect the software, they just replace them with a MBR virus. To me it would have been more scary if they managed to make the legitimate installers run malware. But I guess that isn't as easy.

    To be honest, I always most never use the Start Menu, so I don't need any extra features.
