[url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fejcbcZjx7o&NR=1&feature=fvwp[/url] And um.....shoud i instal it,its just 18,4 MBs
That's purely a matter of opinion, personally I would say don't install it as it's pointless.
I have a bad exprience with trying to decorate my WinXP. I figured the best thing is to just stay with the casual theme (or move to Win7).
I've got a better idea. It's a bit less complicated, more reliable, and you actually end up having windows 7. Wanna hear it?
Go ahead. Back when I had XP I installed one of those themes. They are pretty decent.
How do instal something anyhow
[QUOTE=LinuxMint;25931775]How do instal something anyhow[/QUOTE] I don't really understand what you're trying to say.
no its a virus that will allow hackers to move your mouse cursor i know about this sort of thing
I'm using a Windows 7 Theme on my XP because I can't afford Windows 7. I also have a few other themes. :v:
no matter what you do, you'll stop noticing it after a few days.
Why don't you just install Windows 7? Then again, I guess I can't offer any suggestions as I don't theme anything. Stock installs ftw.
When I was 11 I had a Vista theme and thought I was so leet.
You could get the OEM copy, it's a bit less expensive for some reason(it comes with just the disc in a plastic DVD case w/ a little booklet, no fancy box or packaging). [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116754&cm_re=windows_7_home_premium_oem-_-32-116-754-_-Product[/url]

This isn't a fascist society. Decide it on your own based on your own likings
Like this thread is a perfect opportunity to get some lulz from the OP and yet FP always takes these kinds of threads seriously. Get a sense of humor people. I mean, the OP didn't even put a space after his periods.
No you shouldn't. What you should do is buy [url=http://store.microsoft.com/microsoft/Windows-7-Ultimate-Upgrade/product/592F5AF5?WT.mc_id=WOL_US_comparedetail_ULTup_x]Windows 7 Ultimate[/url].

How poor do you have to be to the extent where you can't pay for a $80 operating system? Seriously.
I personally never installed XP themes when i had it. I found it rather pointless.

There no reason to ever buy anything except the OEM version of Windows. Microsoft support is useless anyway. Search for solutions to your problems yourself, that's what Google is for. Even if you plan on upgrading hardware you can call MS to get your key working again should it start bitching.

I'd googled the problem already and found nothing on it, so I resorted (or tried to resort to) Microsoft support, only to get that. I'd prefer to have a backup like that then nothing at all. But that's just me.
If it hinders you in anyway in XP, then I would say NEGOTIVO.
So wait, you want a 10 year old operating system to look like one that came out last year? You need to get your brain checked, then throw out your computer.

Depends on if your computer could run the theme. With RAM and everything...
