I found this program, since I cant afford Vista yet, and want my XP too look just like Windows Vista

Heres the Link to it

www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Vista-Transformation-Pack-Download-32042.html

Now Im not installing or anything yet, because I want to make sure incase something goes wrong I can restore the computer.

Whats your opinion on it? and How can I create a restore point incase it does mess the computer up?

Thanks guys

Hey there Charliee03, this Vista transformation Pack looks safe to download.

Although I must warn that when you have installed the transformation pack and want to remove it, this can have a few negative effects. Not huge effects making you not able to use the PC, but things like icons will be lost and a downgrade of system performance. I had already experienced this problem when using an older version of transformation pack, but maybe this upgrade will not give you any troubles...

This is a great way to start getting use to Vista, so enjoy and also remember to read all the prompts while installing the transform pack.
