    Good work :)


    As for themes for Windows2000, to my knowledge you're pretty muchly limited to applications like the ones that stardock make.

    I got Geoshell and installed it, but it didnt do anything, it just fooked my desktop up. luckily i got it back the way it was. i will probably install XP soon unless someone can help me find a good shell. i dont want the shell to do anything to my desktop, just to start menu and task bar and stuff. Oh and Speedy_B i cant get windowblinds cuz i have to purchase it dont i?
    thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

    The program I've been using since Windows 95 (before I got XP, of course) was Desktop theme:

    Get it here

    It's shareware, but no nags and the only drawback is that you can't edit the themes with the shareware version. They say it works with XP too, but I haven't tried it.

    From there, you can download any theme pre-XP and apply them. one of many places you can get them is here

    This works for Win9x as well as Win2k.

    Enjoy...

    thanks alot guys, i appreciate it a great deal. But now i am off to instal windows XP :D i hope it all goes smoothly, i will tell u when i finish. i did get one thing to work though, ObjectBar, it makes ur start menu and task bar look exactly the same as XP, its pretty cool, but i only have the trial version of it. Well talk to u when i finish installing
