    I thought of the same thing! But I haven't experimented any more with it yet (I was actually experimenting with it in VMWare Workstation). If you try it before me let us know.

    I wonder if setting the hack to run under Task Scheduler (at startup) would change this at least?

    LOL, I just tried that for about 15 minutes, checked that it did not have adverse effect on the OS, posted about the tweak and then put the thing behind, I need to use metro and I am quite used to it atm.:D

    The program is very good, but there is a problem.If you run the program from startup, you should wait 10 seconds, 'pictures' Metro.If you put a program in the run through the scheduler windows8 (start at the entrance), the program starts quickly, the window disappears instantly Metro, but the desktop is "unworkable" (the problem described 'roirraW "edor" ehT'). I'll try to suggest that at this point has not loaded all the libraries that are used by the program or disable the parameters leads to this result. Is it possible to synchronize the operation of your program with other processes in the windows?(Sorry!, translation google)

    yup
    fine with this, but running at start up as scheduled task(even as admin) does nothing, i have to run it manually, with perfect result.
    wow, even it disappears the hand on the top center of the desktop to close the desktop as app, sadly you can open anymore the network menu from the taskbar :(
    Let's wait if someone figures it out a better trick!

    If the exe is placed in Startup, ultimately one ends with a blank blue desktop. So I hit win+D after it reaches the metro screen and all works well.

    Anyone have a mirror for this? I can't download off PCBeta, register required and it requires an invitation code

    EDIT, Mirror, no pesky registration or invite code hassles
