Hi,
a very nice program, this is what I was looking for, except I have one problem,
it crashes when trying to open the switcher. You can see a screenshot here:

Also, why it aproaches to access to the internet?

Hmm, I've never seen this error before. It looks like it might have something to do with your current DWM settings. Do you have all transparency, effects, etc. turned on?

Someone else once told me that it tries to access the internet as well. No where in my code does it even open a connection. I think it is either a flaw in the firewall, or the firewall is checking for future reference "just in case".

I have exactly the same error:

With me it occurs when I try to preview all the screens fullscreen (windows+z) or when I try to see all the open windows (windows + F9).
Also maybe nice to know: The error repeats itself a couple of times (maybe 4 or 5).
With the fulscreen feature I still get to see all the desktops but it doesn't show the windows in it. Although I can still change to another desktop.
With the "see all open windows" feature it just does nothing anymore.

I hope you can do something with this information and I wanted to thank you for this program, it's really exactly what I was missing on windows.

I will look into this. I've never seen the error myself, so I'm not exactly sure what's causing it.
