I would like to customize my windows xp computer more, but I was wondering, is this program safe? Will it work on my computer?

What are your CP specs computersarecool? Chances are it will work

I have Rainmeter set up using the Omnimo theme. I like the Omnimo theme, because the tiles can be individually sized and colored, and you have hundreds of choices of tiles and color schemes for them. If you google Omnimo, I'm sure the download site will show up. There are hundreds of themes for Rainmeter, though.

It's safe for me. I think Rainmeter is very popular, and I haven't read of any hacks to date. The only ways in would be through a weather or rss feed skin that I can think of.

If you decide to use Rainmeter, post any questions you have later about it, and I will try to answer them for you. There are an almost limitless number of ways to go with it.

Well, computersarecool, the way I see it...

Shhhhh!....Tip coming in for you computersarecool from the resource racoon...ProcessLasso (Gaming Mode ON/Options->General->Recheck Processes every->250 milliseconds) AND GBoost (Advanced Yes in 3,5,6,8,9,10,14,15). Just try the two together. Two together use less than 1% on my core2duo machine. Try them on your laptop too. PLEASE try...

...I would say it can't hurt to try Rainmeter on your PIII. VERY light on resources (1% on my c2duo machine). I'll walk you through the setup if you need any help...

That said, the only system requirement I could find for Rainmeter is that you must have one of the following on your machine:

Windows 7, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2008

I've used it with NO problems on a P4 with XP...

I've used Rainmeter for a couple years - VERY light on resources required. No harmful aspects at all. I would recommend it if it suits your preferences.
