    You can use themes without installing style xp, just download the theme that you want and open it. There should be a 'shell' folder and a 'X.msstyles' file, just click on the style file and xp will load the theme as your current theme.
    Atleast this works on my XP Pro system.

    Or are you just wanting to use the themes that come with XP???

    Hope this helps,
    Steve

    you don't need any program to change it like that
    just right click your desktop and choose properties
    then click the appearance tab
    then change the scheme to whatever you like

    ThemeXP
    My way works with the Visual Styles (VS)
    Visual Styles (1097) you will see it on the left side of the screen, just pick the one you like and do the method that I mentioned.

    Edit: There is a black xp sytle (VS) further down in the 'Most Popular' section also.
