Default Want XP to look like Vista? Here's how.

Hey guy/gals,

I don't know if you like this kinda stuff or know about it, but I've been running previous versions and love it. The latest version is really sweet. Basically it revamps your Windows XP to look literally identical to Vista.. Here's a sample. Oh and to save you time, you can go here to download it. I've been running it a few days, it's awesome.

Get it here.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS!!!!!!!!!!

DO NOT INSTALL THIS!!!!!!!!!!

This "thing" replaces hundreds of system files with untested hacked broken copies. Windows Updates do not work. The result is extreme insecurity and instability with possible spyware and malware included. Do NOT be stupid and do NOT install this. If you do, you will need to reformat your HDD to get rid of this shi*t.

What a load of BS. Please provide proof of your claims. I have run literally all versions of this, I have never had spyware detected, no viruses and no trojans. It also uninstalls without issue. Maybe something changed but I sincerely doubt it. I wouldn't post something that would be harmful to your PC and LOTS of people have been using this!

But please prove me wrong, provide links/and or proof of your claims.

Something hex-hacked by one Thai programmer without source code CANNOT be stable and secure.

I did try to install v6 on virtual machine (to test it, what it does), it never booted again. v7 booted, but uninstallation left Windows XP SP2 in totally unusable state, hundreds of errors everywhere. Number of replaced and broken system files was unbelievable.

Only very stupid people install hundreds of untested system libraries on their production Windows XP, risking stability and security. It is NOT a skin, those are hacked, untested and broken Microsoft files.

One more time: DO NOT INSTALL THIS!!!!!!!!!!

Whatever man, I've installed v6 and uninstalled it and installed it without a single issue. I run security scans(adaware,Spybot Search and Destroy), registry cleaners and I play lots of games and at the same time I've run security scans without issue. You have no F'ing clue what you are talking about. Before you make such claims, provide PROOF of your claims! If you can't do that, stfu.

If your machine is not already stable, then don't install this. But if you have a clue how to run your Windows and are pretty confident things are working right then enjoy this. Please let me know if you have problems and post back with your success or failure. If you feel this guy actually knows something then by all means go to their site and make the claims he has. I am also positive ANY file replaced is restored at uninstall, but again. If you are feeling unsure post on the guys forums.

If you need WinXP look different, Vista-like, get WindowsBlinds, and Vista skin. This does NOT alter hundreds of core Windows XP files, thus is 100% secure and uninstallable.

But the best way to get Vista look is to buy Vista anyway.

Here are some supporting arguments:

This is really irritating me. I have never heard such claims. I have never had a problem with this EVER. I don't like Windowblinds, it's bloat, it slows down your games and cuts your overall performance. It also costs money to be able to tweak anything. I've used StyleXP that also hacks windows files. This is the only thing I've installed where my performance was literally untouched. I am going to post on his forums and a few others to attest for your claims. I've asked you to supply proof and you haven't. You have only provided your OWN experience and to you that's enough to warrant telling people it's bad.

I use to use this transformation pack and had no problems whatsoever, was version 6 I think it was, before I actually installed Vista.

Use to work and look great without problems.

Quit the scaremongery nonsense.

Comments section of the download location.

If it includes modified binaries from Vista sources then it's illegal. Can't believe the BSA hasn't owned the author/site.
