    I've been told that I can change the way Win XP looks. and make it look like my old Win 98......... Is this true? Any probs with this or does it still work like Win XP??

    Right click an empty part of the desktop and select Properties... In the themes tab, select Windows Classic in the Theme dropdown list. Click Apply, and wait a minute or so. It's not exactly Windows 98, but it comes close.

    Also you can change the Start menu to the classic mode. Check out the settings in the "Properties" of the start menu.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dadztoy--

    You can also go to Stardocks or its hundreds of spinoff sites or other skin sites to push the 98 or whatever Windows you want look further, for example--you can do this more extensively if you buy Stardocks' programs but thousands of skins are available free if you search for them using terms like Windows 98 Skins, Windows 98 gui, ect:
