    I'm sure Google can help you find ways to slow your system down.

    you can change your windows theme by downloading the UXTheme Multi-Patcher v2.5.1. you run it once, with a reboot, and your UXTheme.dll will be patched so you can use themes which aren't signed by MS. when you have done that you can use themes called ms.styles or visual styles. here's some links for custom visual styles. to download click on the downward facing arrow.

    they should be put in the themes folder C\windows\resources\themes\

    and you can browse here for more Visual Styles (mssyles) themes.

    you can change your icons with the program below.
