    i'd advise looking into Hover Desk.

    It completley changes the GUI of Windows and you can download skins or create your own.

    It's an amazing app.

    hoverdesk is shareware, i don't feel like paying 20-30 dollars for something i can get from somewhere else, for free, and have it be open source, i can easily edit one text file, add a lot of stuff, recycle, and wala, my own gui...
    besides the fact that alot of the sites are down, there are stil afew good ones left

    its pretty cool once you get goin, can set it up however you want, like int he pic i put before, but the possiblities are endless, check out the litestep section of deskmod.com to see some grade A examples.

    explorer.exe will run when browsing your files. close it and explorer.exe shouldn't run after that.

    its a new gui
    explorer is a browser, its used to browse your system, techinally, theres nothing stopping it from running a new broswer...
    basically, it redoes your interface withyour computer, but, xp still needs the file browser to see files and drives and stuff like that... but, you could get a new file broswer and use that, basically youd be using all your own appz, with windows xp in the bacground holding it together...
    actually, that would make it even more stable... i've been running it for a week, and NOT one error. my game theater keeps doing to same old "no more headphones for you today" thing, but i haven't had explorer or anything else show up as an error.

    ohohoh, i now what you mean now!
    you have to make sure the step.rc file only has to lines, like this

    themepath $litestepdir$themes\notes\
    include $themepath$step.rc

    notes being your theme folder. a restart should clean the registry after installing it, if not, run litestep.exe, make sure the thtme loads, then restart
