Improvements in 7.34 version:

[+] In honor of the liberation of Kherson from the Russian Nazis, a start button with a watermelon was added. Remember, it is not Putin who kills Ukrainians. It is the Russian who presses the hook that launches the rockets. This Russian pays taxes for building rockets. This Russian is silent. There are no good Russians alive. Glory to the ZSU, which makes many good Russian ones.
Russians brutally killed people in Chechnya, Georgia, Karabash and many other countries even before Putin. It's just that now you can see it thanks to the internet. They were always so inhuman. Hitler learned from Stalin to kill his own people. Do not believe the Russians. Never.

[+] Restart PC after setup
To reduce security threats, the program will always require you to restart your PC during installation.

[+] In the new version, we ignore Windows options regarding the color of the menu
By default, Windows uses black for the menu. We're tired of explaining how to disable this option. Therefore, in the new version, we will not take it into account this option and the menu color will match the color of Aero that you select in windows settings.
