    I get this warning on both the file downloaded here and from the home page:
    Found infection “Trojan.VB!IK” in object “\\SYNOLOGYDISKSTA\Programs\_Free\WIndows Tweaks\StyleFolder Version 1.0.4\Stylefolder 1.0.3.exe”.

    False or? Well, I’m not gonna use it.

    I too was unable to get it to run successfully: Win 7, x64 SP1. Most disappointing. Suggestions welcomed.
