If you have installed a pirate copy (AKA cracked) version of WindowBlinds 5, please be aware that the crack is faulty and WindowBlinds will cease to function correctly on your computer.
To fix this you just need to uninstall WB and if you wish install a purchased copy of WB, or the trial.
To uninstall, you can either wait for your computer to login, unload WB (either using wbconfig, display properties, or from a command prompt calling WBLOAD UNLOAD) and then uninstall WB. Or you can boot into safe mode & uninstall WB from there.
Your computer has not been harmed in anyway. Whoever made the crack did a poor job and patched out code that causes WindowBlinds to no longer be able to paint bitmaps (so title bars, borders, everything will be black).
No comment. Just noticed the date.
"Just noticed the date"

Go to the system-tray (By the clock) if WB's is running and Double click on it's Icon
then Click on ABOUT WINDOWBLINDS
then Click on COPY TO CLIPBOARD
then paste it here.
Might be better to start your own thread if you need help. Resurrecting a 6 year old necrothread about pirated copies isn't a good idea
I am under the impression after using WindowsBlinds a while in combination with the Windows 8 Metro skin that it tends to blur my IE9 Windows while moving a Window in MS Win 7 from the left to my right screen. Since system stability is essential for me I decided to deinstall WB all together. No am not asking for my money back I just hope to get purchase a skin that is more like Windows 2008 R2 Server. I really am more Corporate Candy minded then the IMHO cartoonnesk skins you often find for WB.
Good to see you've found the ideal thread in which to participate. It's only 7 years out of relevance....

I already did (yesterday), but have heard nothing back yet. Meanwhile, I'm have to use an old computer for email such as this one. Again, HELP!
saludos amigos ayuda por favor
he instalado WindowBlinds la versión mas reciente en mi wndows7
pero tengo un problema con el menu de inicio SE VE OBCURO
como lo arreglo.
estoy utilizando la versión de prueba
My version is not cracked. I downloaded from Stardock after paying for a renewal to Object Desktop and I still get glitches. I waited a good while to get the windows 10 version. Now I will uninstall a try again later. Nothing to do with Pirates. Or people not paying.
OK I just noticed the date also. Seems Stardock are not on the ball at all. Posting very old crap onto a new program with a new operating system.
Huh? Stardock didn't do that, you did.
Yes, probably time to lock as relevance 11 years later is a bit suspect.
