    I'm looking for some advice on software to change the desktop theme in XP. My 13yo son is obsessed with wanting to make his desktop look like Vista. I'm not enthusiastic about having him download a bunch of hacks for his desktop.

    Does anyone here have anything they use and would recommend for changing desktop themes?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    One of the better known programs for changing Windows themes is Stardock.com - WindowBlinds. It is not very expensive.
