Alrighty so want I wanted to know is:

- good websites to get XP themes
- how safe/easy are they to install and unninstall?
- do they require/eat up alot of RAM?

Hmm... and that's pretty much it XD

Best possible source of visual styles for XP, imo, is good old deviantart.


You need Styler or UXtheme to use them (both are easy to find in google and both are totally free and simple to install), and they work fine. I supose the RAM issue depends on the visual style, but it's hardly ever a big deal.

(edit: sort by "Popular" to find the best ones)

^ And if you want that In black then you can go here (http://microsoft-zune-theme.en.softonic.com/) and if you want it with a choice of coloured start bars go here (http://atomikscr.deviantart.com/art/Zune-Theme-Color-Mod-50421916)

I'd recomend theme sites if I knew any, hehe :D deviantart is a good one. I wouldnt recommend my vista theme tbh, it looks exactly like vista but i'm sure it's eating my computer alive XD
It's here (http://rotkiv.deviantart.com/art/YAFVC3-Final-Build-1-5-31184159) If ya wanna look :p I didnt install it so i dunno how to set it up tho :p
