Get Missing Personalisation Features In Windows 7 Home Basic And Starter Edition

Windows 7: The Starter and Home Basic editions of Windows 7 are crippled when it comes to customisation. If you want Aero Glass, Aero Peek or just wallpaper switching from the desktop context menu, here's a handy patch.

The small EXE file, created by a "Mr Dusha" and posted by Microsoft MVP Vishal Gupta, patches system files to enable all the personalisation features of Windows Ultimate.

(Note: lacking a Home Basic or Starter machine, we haven't personally tested this out, but from the comments the patch works simply and as promised. To uninstall, Vishal writes you can re-run the patch or type in sfc /scannow at the command prompt.)

    Now all you need is a patch that will delete all the crapwear that most devices sporting Basic and starter have to put up with!! #]

    Yep, worked as promised. Sweet.

    Looks awesome! This will stop the gf from bitching that she can't change her wallpaper!
