Thanks Bill. I have already implemented those changes after searching on Google. They make marginal improvements to the appearance. I'm still missing the XP look and feel. What makes it worse is that despite using the compatibility wizard almost nothing works initially, some of the softwares don't work at all. I've had to spend a lot of time installing and reinstalling before getting many utilities to work. These are small software that I use, created by little known companies and most don't work with Windows 7. Asking them to update is pointless. Some haven't issued an update for over five years. Even my ISP's China make USB modem gave me a tough time. I'll take Windows XP over Windows 7 anyday. It's just that the Intel i5 processor I got talked into buying won't run XP. I think these anti-trust guys should haul up Microsoft and Intel for conspiring to get people to waste time and money arm-twisting them into buying newer versions. It's like one day your car's carburetor conks off and you replace it but you're also forced to change all the upholstery and repaint the whole car for it to be functional again. I should really start looking at Linux as an alternative.
