Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by chez_the_great, Feb 15, 2002.

  1. Does any one know if it is possible to whether you can change the windows 98 taskbar with a windows XP desktop theme?? My comp is not strong enough to run XP, but yet i want ot have the cool start bar. Even if someone knows how to customize the win98 bar with something different, i know there is way, but i do not know how to.

    Would ya let me know if ya know ya self.

    Shell Replacement

    There is a really nice shell replacement havent found any bugs in it yet and it uses less memory then explorer and has many themes to download..even a theme of XP.

    I ran Windows XP Pro on a PII 400MHz, 128 Mb RAM and a Neo-Magic magicgraph 128 (2Mb vid. memory) and that ran ok so if ur computer cant handle xp u should consider replacing it.:D

    Ok, that is slow :D

    a friend of mine runs windows 2000 pro on a p200 with 64mb RAM and a 2 (possibly 4) mb onboard graphics card and it runs sloooooooow.

    upgrading mb, cpu and ram isn't that expensive. and a lot of mb come with half decent onboard G and S cards

    Thats pretty good compared to my friends pc. Hes running Windows ME on a Pentium Pro 136MHz, 32Mb RAM and a 2GB Hard Drive. What a lump of sh*t. When he tries to shutdown it says "Not enought Memory to shut down. Please delete some items from the recycle-bin." So he goes to the recycle-bin and tries to delete the small files and gets the message "Not enough memory to delete". LOL what a lump of crap
