Jk... There are a lot of ways to theme XP but I have to leave, so I'll post them later. If you want, you can PM me than I'll give you my SN and we can chat and I'll walk you through it.

You can use Visual Styles. It changes the theme on XP and you don't need any 3rd party software. All you'll need is an unlocked uxtheme.dll. More info at: http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=339820

I got a great Idea! Why not just wait for Windows Vista?

Well, I guess it only makes sense, you don't want one thing forever.

@Cycloneflame - Why would you even say that, Vista is still in Beta, it's still gonna be a while for it to come out. Plus, how do you even know that the uxtheme.dll will be unlocked? You'll probobly still need to have a 3rd party program to change themes. Obviously you have know idea what you are talking about, so how about not saying anything insted of giving invalid advice.

Alienware has around 3 differnt really cool winxp themes. All of them have windows media player skins that move around and whatnot. Im pretty sure you can find them at the skinsfactory. Just search it on google I dont know the link anymore.

actually i think you dont know what your talking about

seeing as ive used the neowin patch, and i just double click on the visual styles i dl from da, and boom, a skin

i dont like those programs that give spyware and lag ur computer, that neowin patch doesnt lag whatsoever :)

yeah, there is no lag with this and unlike style XP this does not expire.

What are you talking about. I've been talking about Visual Styles since... forever. Maybe you should re-read my post and not make an ass out of yourself.

Yes, I will help you, insted of fill this topic with a debate.

Don't use Window Blinds. Why, you may ask. Because it uses up resources like a motha. So, you make as... if not that then what? Cmon, don't leave me hangin'.

Well, I wont :)

First, go to this [LINK] (http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=339820)
Follow those directions.

For good Visual Styles go to DA at this [LINK] (http://browse.deviantart.com/skins/windows/visualstyle/?view=1&order=9&limit=24)

I didn't do anything I have just pointed you in the right direction. So, don't even thank me.
