Dont worry this is why its free but its harmless - run the exe grab the wallpaper then uninstall. I've checked the process with adaware, spybot, webroot and hijack this - in 12months nev had a problem.

This doesn't change backgrounds or cursors or anything, just the start- task etc bars

all you need to dod then is browse here : http://www.wincustomize.com/Skins.aspx?LibID=1
