RainWallpaper - a slightly biased review.RainWallpaper is just a wallpaper tool, nothing more, nothing less. You can select an animated wallpaper from the default list or take a wallpaper from the online gallery. It displays an animated wallpaper image on your system background, on the main monitor or the second.
So, on to two installations to test the product, first of all the bad review and then the much more positive review. I give you my reactions in the order I tested.
The installation was easy and simple though the download was quite large and took a while to complete. When installed it is easy to run and places a small RainWallpaper icon (a raindrop) in your systray for access to configuration options.

This Dell desktop is slower than my old 2.5ghz core2duo laptop with boot times tripled and with a less-than-snappy response from Windows. Each click on a setting pane results in 4-5 seconds of waiting whilst it displays a stationary, non-turning cog wheel before it eventually does anything.
The machine is in general disappointing in use, feeling clunky, slow and ready for the junkyard. That was, of course, a machine running the latest version of Windows 10.
This lack of power was noticed after a recent-ish update to Windows 10, everything seemed to be having a bit of a go-slow. We decided to see whether it actually was caused by Win10 or whether perhaps we had just filled the registry with so much crap that the machine was begin
