Step 1: Getting the Stuff

I have all of the programs you need right here. Yay!!! un-zipped files!!!!!!!


Now all that is left is to double click and let the installation wizards.
For the mouse cursors, go to control panel and click on Mouse.Click pointers and click the first which should say normal select. Click Browse. Go to the location of the file and click on the areo-arrow click open. Continue with the rest.

Downloaded ViStart to make my XP Look like Windows7. But as many times I click on ViStart, it doesn't do a thing for me. Wish there were actual instructions on what to do after extraction of the zip file.
Hey by the way how do you add the downloads to your instructable? Like how can i add a downloadable folder to my instructable without using hyperlinks?
Thanks man this is great except do you or anyone know how to get the bottom bar (thats still xp after all the downloading) to turn into the vista taskbar? Also does anyone have download to turn the desktop icons into vista icons? other than this, This instructable is great!

rlly?huh...never knew that...i have vista home premium and it doesnt...although i did download rocket dock for my xp machine...pretty cool stuff....

Mac has an object dock; vista has a sidebar. The sidebar is a spin-off from the object dock. Both very handy, though.

i dont count one of them it stinks no one likes it
Even though it is your second you should still put time and effort into your Instructable, use a spell checker and do a project that you really want to share with the whole world. Go in depth, some people might not understand your vague instructions. Good luck Oh, and welcome to Instructables!
