You can change back to your normal xp interface by uninstalling the vista transformation pack above.
Be warned, however, it can screw up some systems or not work entirely as it should.
Also, it will use more memory than your normal xp, which can cause unacceptable slow-down on system's with less than 1Gb RAM. I've used it, but I only had 512Mb RAM at that time so it did run slower than before. I may give it another try now I've upped the RAM to 1Gb.

Needless to say, since this transformation changes many of Window's system files, you should ideally have a backup image of your current XP installation before installing the package, so you can quickly restore XP if something goes wrong.
Or at the very least have a backup of your own data files.
