I made this pretty much for my own personal use, but I know there's a (very) few others who are interested in it, so I decided to make a release of it. If you like it, great, otherwise, you are irrelevant. If you want something specific de-XPified, or if you find any bugs, tell me about them, and I'll try to get them sorted in the next release.
Last Updated (2007/03/17): Update for SP3, import some bugfixes from Tango Patcher 2600 8.06. Those security center shields look like crap...
Honestly, I'm kinda curious to know how many people still use this - as SP3 is likely to be the last new comctl32.dll for XP/2003, unless there's some kind of feature request, this is quite likely the last update this'll ever get.
The "2002" part in the Windows 2002 logo is not using the right font. Why not use the font used in the actual 2002 logo? Or use Paint to copy and paste the first 2 in 2000 and replace the last 0 with it, for a foolproof mod? That's my biggest complaint with this, and I really hope that can be fixed in a future release. The only annoying thing is the Luna Windows XP theme is visible briefly at logon. Otherwise, excellent work!
If you're on a newer version of Windows, it might get in the way. Try to override Windows Defender. Otherwise, if you have a server, I usually do a wget there and use SFTP to transfer the file over.
