    Make Vista Look like XP and run faster too

    Since Vista uses more ram than XP, swithing in to XP mode will make it run faster
    To make Vista look like XP, follow these steps:

    1)Start by changing the Start menu: Right-click the Start button, choose Properties.
    In the Properties box, select Classic Start menu, and click OK.

    2)Next, bring back the desktop: Right-click a blank part of the desktop and choose Personalize.
    Choose Theme and then choose Windows Classic from the Theme pull-down menu. Click OK.

    3)Finally, put the menus back on top of each folder: Open your Documents folder from the Start menu.
    Then click the Organize button, choose Folder and Search Options, and choose Use Windows Classic Folders. Click OK.

    thanks Maxim,

    I've been running Vista about a year now and whilst i don't have any problems with it, anything that makes it run more efficiently is welcome.
