    It's just great and so is that extra toolbar and loads of junkware and crapware that gets installed along with it even though I told setup NOT to install any of that extra junk. It also changed my home page to a junkware page without my permission. Took me a half hour to uninstall all the junk. Now I'm running a malware check to see if there is anything else hidden where I didn't find it so far. Shame on whoever came up with this piece of @hit.

    Installer is updated now so remove false positives too. It was detecting the skin file as malicious for some reason earlier. :)

    WinAeroSkinforClassicShell.zip\WinAero skin for Classic Shell.exe can be opened by 7-Zip and there are two png files, one skin file & one reg file.

    :g:

    I just downloaded the file again. It is a zip file called WinAeroSkinforClassicShell.zip. Inside the zip file is a file called WinAero skin for Classic Shell.exe. That is the file I installed and which put a bunch and junkware, crapware, changed my home page to the junkware page, and added a new toolbar to Internet Explorer.

    Good news. The installer is now updated and there will no longer be false positives of malware.

    Although it's offtopic, I presumably resolved the loading problem by putting winaero.com on IPv4-only list. It doesn't seem to work over IPv6, at least from here.

    Edit: @anyone with IPv6 issues In Firefox:
    1. Type ''about:config'' (without quotes) into the address line and press <RETURN>. Confirm the warning.
    2. Navigate to the network.dns.ipv4OnlyDomains setting. Add winaero.com.
    3. Make a mental notice to remove it when it will be no longer needed.
    Alternatively, use the Fx add-on 4or6.
