FAQ: How to solve issues (if any) —————————————————————————————————————
> You must have WindowBlinds 6.X ENHANCED to use this theme with Aero glass frames! If the theme turns to classic or something your WB is NOT activated.

> If you have a activated WB version but don't see aero glass frames, your video card doesn't support glass, or something is configured incorrectly.

> If your logoff shutdown area in the startmenu is displayed incorrectly - use StartmenuLSTremover supplied in the package before complaining!!!

>If you have corrupted (white looking) fonts in the titlebar (which is usually a conflict with styler program) go to wbconfig, select system info tab, and check the box on the right (Enable if you have corrupted titlebar...)

> More info in information.PDF
