Hey I see screenshots of people with different start menus and all (well 'themes' I guess you could say) where do I go to download these and what do I need? Do I need this program to do this or that? I googled it and it sayed I have to buy this program to change the format of the skins etc. How do I ge them?

I personally don't use them in XP. Skins and themes are notorious places for malware to hide and get into your computer. They also use resources that could be better spent elsewhere. Thats my personal stance. Now a browser I might skin or use a theme, but not XP.
