Make Vista look like XP!

I have preferred XP theme to Vista but persevered with Vista all the same
Now I find that I can make Vista look a bit like XP by changing the themes
Click on desktop and choose Personalize
Choose themes and select Windows Classic.
Next,click on Change Desktop icons on the Personalize window...this puts "My Computer" back onto the desktop. To get the XP style menu,right click the Start button and select properties. Click start menu an select Classic Menu.
Click the customise and this puts the "run option" back into the menu
This is missing from Vista
I did this and like the result better than the Vista theme
Its down to personal choice but you could try it and see?
