Make XP Look Like Vista

If you are still a Windows XP user like me, you should definitely check out this cool free software called Vistamizer, which can make your XP look like Vista. While there has been quite some negative comments about Windows Vista since its release last year, one thing for sure is the new graphical interface of Vista is really cool.. a lot cooler than Windows XP. So in order to make XP look like Vista, I use this cool stuff called Vistamizer. This cool software will modifies your system files, and totally convert your system into the cool Vista GUI. You will not remember how your old desktop looks like after installing Vistamizer. The good thing about this software is that it will backup all the changes that have been made to your system, so you can easily revert it back to the original system setting.

I installed Vistamizer on my Windows XP few days back, and have no complaint on it so far. It's stable, and does not affect the system performance. My friend actually thought that I have upgraded to Vista when I show them my new desktop :P. A great software to make XP look like Vista.

yeah vista sux...but this is cool, I have xp and wouldn't get vista if vista was spitting out $10 dollar bills from my disk drive.

SEO Expert said...

nice. now do you have something that will turn vista back into xp for those of use who upgraded pre-maturely? ;)

ivo said...

In my opinion, vista needs a lot of improvements to be able to compete with xp, especially on performance. Personally i'll stick with xp for the moment.

I myself wanted to install vista on my computer but I was not able to because of low configuration. Than one day I found software on the internet with the help of which my windows start looking like vista. It’s amazing.

Eyeclops said...

Yikes. I don't ever want to catch the Vista virus. Even looking like Vista scares me.

I have heard that transformer like this have some hidden maul ware or spyware in there.. Are they really safe to use?

jratzsch said...

Run Ubuntu, compiz-fusion! I did do a vista transformation with the Neowin hack, and a real nice/basic Vista theme, can't remember what it was. Then I used a real light StylesXP just for window decorations...

still not control like compiz-fusion! Although I still think the last implementations of beryl are still better than compiz-fusion...

Yeah Linux has got it!

but yeah I'd rather have xp

why need vista?
XP 100% way better than vista

Scoop said...

Make XP look like Vista is a great idea. A user can learn how to navigate Vista, while still using XP.

That will be a big help for us users who will use XP until Microsoft stops supporting it.

Thanks.

Hi,
Just the name vista makes my blood run cold. I have XP, but my son has just bought a computer with Vista on it. Now its a £600 paper weight.

Matt Saunders said...

why not just get Vista?

rich said...

I have been thinking of upgrading to vista for a while now but all the bad publicity is putting me off.I will be giving this a try

I've heard of softwares that can do this ever since Vista was first released but I've never heard of Vistamizer before.

Get a Mac and I guarantee you won't look back! :)

I'm using both Vista and XP on 2 separate machines and I still like XP over Vista at this time. Too many of my games don't run on Vista.

XP with 4GB of ram is the way to go!

In my opinion,vista still not suitable for advanced use.now,it just like win xp when they started to introduced them instead of win 98/ME back then.just like xp,vista need time be accept by all users.

Crown Listings said...

I don't even like vista..

skip said...

As soon as i finish reading this article, i straight download the software.

I agree, win vista is not entirely stable right now. I think ill wait till sp2 come out hahaha..

How easy/time consuming/buggy is it to toggle back and forth between Vista look and XP look?
Last week I installed IE 7 after being convinced that I could go back to IE 6 no problem if I didn't like it ( I didn't) .. and after doing so my IE was rendered pretty much useless.
I am reluctant to change but do like the Vista graphic...

There's also Vista Transformation Pact 7 that changes XP’s interface, including the Start menu, the Control Panel, system dialogs, icons, and more, to Vista style. Also includes a transparency function to mimic Vista’s Aero Glass functionality. It’s probably the most comprehensive package out of all, so be very careful with it.

Erikka Fasting Arone said...

Vista Transofrmation Pact Version 8 was released at Nov 28. It’s seems to be better and much more stable.

* Boot screen / Welcome Screen / Logon Screen.
* New desktop, file and toolbar icons.
* Progress Dialogs.
* New System Tray icons.
* New Sounds scheme.
* New interface visual styles.

erp said...

nice! i've been looking for this kinda software ever since i saw how cool vista looks like..and the other similar programmes i downloaded sucked...

erp said...

Thx for the cool software. Now i can change my xp to look like vista then buying it which cause problem.

How to invest said...

I really despise windows vista. It simply bogs down systems and will eat every bit of ram you can through at it. Why would someone want to move over to a new buggy operating system when the old one works fine is beyond me.

Hardhono said...

Using vista transformation program can make your computer slow. But thanks for this article

web design cluj said...

I had a windows vista theme which was ok, but after i reinstalled my windows wouldn't work any more even though i placed it again in the themes folder. But this one seems way cooler!

Sheamus said...

Isn't there something about shallow, a bit needy, about making something inferior (or at least older), look like something better, or new?

I'm reminded of those skins you can get for the N95 and what have you that make it 'look' like an iPhone.

Why not just buy an iPhone? Or install Vista? ;)

Graham Foster said...

Yes it might look like Vista but lets hope it doesn't work like VISTA.
Microsoft really excelled themselves when they produced that bunch of cra* .

The outlook is bleak if every time they produce more software it has more bugs than a bug farm (if there is such a thing). It's not getting house room in my office any time soon.

Joshua said...

I don't have much of a problem with Vista.

Faraz said...

Thanks, I was looking for something like that. You did not mention how the software is on resources? does it take too much RAM? will 512 MB be enough?

Dave said...

Does this slow down the system or does XP performance stay the same.

Tim said...

Good Job! :)

VIsta Suxs!!!!

Vista stands for Virus Intruders Spyware Trojens Adware.

XP stands for XTREEEMMEE PppEEERRFFOORRMMMAANNNCCCEE!!!!!! (super duper)

Some people are waiting for the time to buy a new PC, some are not upgrading because their hardware isn't up to it, and some well.....just don't want to. Well there's nothing wrong with wanting to stick with XP for a while, but maybe you would like to change the "look" of XP to more of a Vista "style".

The interest in making Windows XP look like Vista has been going on for a while, but I get asked to this day what are the best ways to change the desktop to look more like Vista. Some want just the visual style changed, and some want the entire look and feel of their desktop changed to reflect Vista.......

Try Vistamiser Now><<<><<
