Well, I was not sure but now I am as the problem occurs with a fresh win7 x64 install:
- Sometimes (well, a lot of), after (first) logon right after boot, wb seems to miss something and my skin is not using "per pixel frame". Worst, if I try to open a folder with windows file explorer it hangs for about 20-30 seconds (same thing I I try to open the configuration panel). In that case, everything is ok after asking WB to skin again, or after a logout/login (without reboot of course). Doing that, file explorer works ok and the skin is well applyed.
It seems that the problem happens randomly when the system is busy (initializing a lot of things at the end of boot and logon). If I wait a little before logon (to let the pc terminate the init) sometimes these 2 problems does not occurs, sometimes they do.
I have the same problem with wb7, wb8, wb8.1. I thought about an antivirus problem but I tried with ESET and Kaspersky, same thing.
On my fresh install, file explorer problem occurs after installing wb (I installed it for last, after all the others), so I think it's really a problem linked with WB. Strange that I don't see anybody talking about this issue ...
Any opinion ?
Also, It's not related but I'd like to know what happens in term of disk activity when applying a skin. When doing so, we can see a significant disk activity... and I wonder how it's problematic for a SSD ... When making a skin we do apply it a lot to test, and after every boot the skin is applyed. So considering the limited write cycles of a SSD, WB may have a big impact for SSD lifetime.
