Whenever you install do you see the Win XP theme or is it in classic view? Do you have all the programs installed like IE, WMA, and Outlook? I'm having some trouble with my install, that's why I'm asking. So take a look at my post and tell me what you think.

Go to Display Properties in Windows and make sure that the Theme is enabled. The stripped down look of WinXP is for the corporate types who don't wnat /need all the eye candy.

It's also for those of us that need to use XP but don't appreciate titlebars that are 20% thicker and Playschool colored

I always use the classic theme. Besides being less obnoxious, it is faster and uses less graphics resources.
