if you've got lots of ram, then it won't make your windows work slower. i've got 128 megs of ram and it's fine for me.
i think that patchXP is better than styleXP. if you've got trial version of stylexp, then after 30 days it's going to ask registration and you cant use it anymore. but the good side stylexp is that you can switch logons with it.
patchXP is simple. you patch it, click reboot and then start downloading themes.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
