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.

http://browse.deviantart.com/customization/skins/windows/visualstyle/?order=5

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
