Trusted download source
The users who have already obtained or are downloading the Windows 7 start menu emulator for Windows XP/Vista are advised to thoroughly check the credibility of the website or source from which the installer package has been obtained. This is because installing an infected installer package that was downloaded from some fake websites on the Internet will cause damage to the installed OS which might later on lead to a data corruption or system crash.
Verify installer package
There are many types of Windows 7 emulator programs available for changing/modifying the user interface of Windows XP/Vista. The original Windows 7 start menu emulator is programmed to modify the looks of Windows XP/Vista start menu only. Some of these interface emulator programs are called as transformation packages and changes most of the interface of the installed OS which might cause graphical instability or related issues in the system.
