    Why are you using Vista Tranformation Pack?
    Why are you using Windowblinds?
    Why do you want XP to look like Vista?

    Be a man and customize the real way! Part by part.
    I had my XP looking like Vista for a while and it was so convincing that my friend actually believed I had vista.

    You can even change the icons in the taskbar to vista ones. The Vista start bar is easily emulated by VSE. Flip3d has a freeware XP version out. You can also emulate the sidebar of Vista easily. You can easily find those programs/mods on the aqua-soft forums if you look hard enough.
    The breadcrumbs type addressbar can also be mimicked by Qtaddressbar. As for the theme; you're on your own. I never had an interest for vista themes and the only ones that come to mind are Vista Royale and Watercolor Emilio Black (which is actually a decent theme) and other than those I don't know or wouldnt bother with.

    OOT:Use BricoPacks, I did, and it works perfectly, I even took their sound files, especially for WIndows Startup and Windows Exit, they're flawless! [​IMG]

    I dunno, do you want a Vista liek skin or a custom one?
