I installed VCP 3.6, and the darn thing screwed up all the text on the start menu, there were no transparency effects, and the darn "Rebuilding Icon Cache" thing ate up ten minutes of time at start up. I managed to get the program off (but I have a feeling it's still gonna be "Rebuilding [my F***ing] Icon Cache" every time I reboot.

Terrible product.

Pros
  • Easy install
Cons
  • No visual effects, hokey start-up (the icon cache thing), messes up text and graphics, still rebuilding my icon cache every time I reboot even after uninstall
