Thank you so much!
When I run it it says Im not running vista....???
so sorry for very late in reply

run in comparability mode, i will fix this issue, it is just the detection of the os method, not a big thing
Is it possible to add an option to set it "on desktop"?
Like the "on bottom" option but in a way that it doesn't disappear when we hit the "show desktop" button.
so sorry for very late in reply

i will try to include it, but i don't think i will be able to prevent the windows from being minimized, but i will try anyway

it dont pop up as virus for me... and the options wont pop up for me
so sorry for very late in reply

it's false alert due to UPX compression, you can set an exception in your AV, and if u have some suspicions, you can see the source code in the description
