    Hello Jakob99,

    Have a look for Bricopack (Bricopac ?). Bricopack will install, with an uninstall option, a Vista like desktop/theme. There are two versions. One gives a slightly Linux look with the penguin, the other gives a straight Vista look. Install the lightest option as the full customisation in both may not be able to be uninstalled. The lighter/cosmetic option in both do not use any system/RAM resources. Both are good to "play with" and don't worry if both put a set of new .dll's in the System 32 folder. Uninstalling reverses the process. These packs may work for you, they may not but are a bit of a change in the XP look and a bit of fun.

    Cheers from Aunty Jack.

    Thanks for your suggestions. The bricopack will not do what I need it to do(Allow me to edit the blue bars to whatever I want) I'll try the google search and see what that tosses up.

    I should've said allow me to edit the blue bars to whatever I want without having to use a pre made pack.
