During this tutorial, you will be able to make your boring Windows 2000 interface look exactly like XP with the help of a few softwares. There are a few items that won't be included, such as the appearance of the control panel and such. You will be able to skin your PC, get the XP start menu, replace (almost) all your icons and get the XP sounds. What are you waiting for, let's get started!

Step 1: Download the Files

Download the file below, entitled xptransformation.zip. Given the fact you have WinZIp on your computer, a whole lot of files should pop up. DO NOT WORRY! This may seem alarming at first. It isn't. Click on the WinZip "Wizard" button on the toolbar. Extract the folder and all it's contents to the C DRIVE ONLY! Otherwise this whole thing will not work. If you have done all this correctly, a folder should now be on your C drive called, "Themexp." Open this folder and click on the file Objectbar160_public.exe. Install Objectbar. Then click on windowblinds46.exe. Install WindowBlinds. At this point you may reboot your system if you wish.
