  1. Hey everyone out there. Just a quick question, seeing as a specific mate isnt on msn to help me out, there's a program which you can use to change/personalize the windows task bar/start button/menu, and I can't remember what it's called. I'm sick and tired of the boring old XP look, and I'm after something more funky. Can you help me out with any suggestions? Thanks guys

    Style XP is likely the program you are thinking about. It has a free trial but you have to pay to use it forever.

    But, there is a UXTheme.dll that you can use which is free, and allows you to use Style XP themes. You can get it here for XP SP2.
