2.Download the VISTA EXPLORER FROM HERE. The instructions are also provided

3.Change the Boot screen.I was surfing Through the Web about this and found this wonderful article.Please go for it and you can change your boot screen very easily.

4.Download Vistal so that you can get the Aero Glass style UI on Xp.

5.Download ShockAero,which is a Flip-3D effect simulator that you can use in Windows XP. Installing Shock Aero assigns the Alt-Tab command (which, unfortunately, is non-customizable) to initiate the Flip-3D effect mimicking the same effect that you have in Windows Vista. While doesn’t offer anything more than just that, a portable version makes it a worthwhile download.

So heres it!! I hope you like it .

So enjoy the VISTA LOOK!!
