Make windows xp look like vista

by rhxchad / October 15, 2007 5:36 PM PDT

Hello everyone. I have installed Bricopacks and it has made my xp screen look like vista. But one thing is still missing which I really want to have, the transparent effect on the taskbar and title bars of the window. Could anyone suggest some tips how I can have it? I would like to have it free. Thanks

I'm afraid you're asking too much now.

Aero (that's what it's called in Vista) is whole new technology.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
