    Well, there are many mods to change XP. Window Blinds, Style XP, etc. Some sites you may want to check out are:

    www.winmatrix.com
    www.themexp.org
    www.neowin.net

    These sites will give you a ton of info.

    You can do some modifications, such as desktop icon size through the registry, if you feel comfortable. Programs such as TweakXP can help to change the look of the interface, as well.

    Here is a quick tip. If you like a clean desktop, try this:

    Click on My Computer as if you were going to name it something else. While holding down the ALT key, type in 255 (on the numeric keypad.) Release the ALT key and press enter. Only the icon will appear, no text.
