for Windows XP. This can be used to replace your explorer.exe to fit with your other XP to Win 8 transformation. Only a little detail.
If you like the look, simply try it.:)
Please use the enclosed replacer for safe change of the file.
Two files included in this pack: German+English

:new:I've updated this deviation for private uses, to match the look of Windows8.1
If you like the look you can download it from my skydrive
skydrive.live.com/#cid=831C4AE...
because :devart: doesn't allow the upload of exes anymore.:toilet:

Old version still here on DA

No redistribution inTransformationpacks/Skinpacks allowed.

Hey, you are saying that this only works with Windows XP but the screen shot looks just like Windows 8 (look at the system tray). Is it actually windows 8 or you modified the system tray to make it look like windows 8 on XP? If it's XP, please tell how did you get that windows 8 system tray on it. I wanna do it too!

These are original screenshots from my XP system. It looks like Windows8 but it isn't. The systray is displayed by an SBarskin made by me.

Please can you give me that SBar skin?

No this only works with Windows XP.

Luckily (or unlucky; as you think 'cause the support ended) I still use Windows XP
