no you can change the colour - most are either grey or black though I think from memory.

64-Bit Windows XP Pro is a version of XP that recognises above 3.5GB of RAM.

Normal XP is 32-bit. You most likely have XP 32-bit.

Does your System Properties window look like THIS (http://www.pcstats.com/articleimages/200512/dualboot64_xp64logo1.jpg) or THIS (]http://www.windows-help-central.com/image-files/system-properties-logo.jpg)?

First is 64-bit, second is normal (32bit)

I would be careful, with some of these installs that change XP's look

They can stuff up system files, and can totally screw things up

If you want Vista, go and buy it

Then i'd rather stay on the safe side, maybe i will just get a good normal theme. :eek:

Anybody know of a theme better than royale?:confused:

Get a good icon set too-from deviantart
Some may require you to have the program "icon tweaker", also available on the crystal XP webpage
