    You don’t need it. go to the charms bar, click settings, click change pc settings, and click personalazation. Even better than this 🙂

    The link to the file you are providing is a file riddled with malware. Upload the file from the link that you gave to Virustotal and see what lights up my friend. Seems the author decided to make a few bucks and instead of doing it the honest way he chose the cheesey way and loaded the installer with malware.
    People this is garbage, do not download this file from the author or Softpedia. Windows 8.1 provides it’s own Start Screen customization that is better or equal to this.
