Turn Your XP to Vista Look

Hate Vista's requirements but love its appearance? Give your Windows XP the look and feel of vista with these great tools with a new Firefox vista black theme, Windows Visual styles, tools, and wallpapers.

These have been selected from a large variety of vista transformation files available for their closeness to vista, system compatibility and quality.

Whats included:

FireFox 2 Vista Black Theme, a great looking theme for your Firefox 2.
To install:
  • Open the Firefox Theme Manager (Tools/Addons/Themes)
  • Drag the .jar file into the left hand panel.
  • Install the theme, select it and restart Firefox.
Vista MS Styles, 2 new Vista themes for XP.

(The 32pix icon Vista Basic theme is perhaps the best with resizable minimize/maximize/close buttons. To get the best Vista look select the 'Sugoe UI' font and resize the 'Active Window Border' to size 7. Make sure your 'Icons' are size 32.)

LSPatch - Removes the Logoff/Shutdown text from the Start Menu.
Visual Task Tips v2.1 - generates preview windows on the taskbar.
Vista Drive Indicator - gives your drives a status bar in explorer like Vista.

Vista System Properties
Replaces the XP System Properties with a Vista style one.
To install:
  • Create a backup of your 'sysdm.cpl' file. (Windows/System32)
  • Reboot in 'Safe mode' and replace the 'sysdm.cpl' file with the one that matches your cpu. (either 'AMD' or 'Intel')
  • Restart your computer in normal mode.
Some new Vista Wallpapers to enhance your new Vista XP OS.

I hope you enjoy these. All files included in this pack are freeware!
