Look and Feel of Windows XP

Hi,

How do I change the Look and Feel of Win7 to that of Windows XP, i.e. Menus, Hourglass, No Hover Over, No second guessing the User, etc. Just plain old menus, and clicking.

Welcome to the Seven Forums
For the start menu try this ANN: Classic Shell 2.9.3 is out - Now with Search!
For the hourglass I'm assuming you're talking about mouse change to a different pointer Mouse Pointers - Change
Could you post some screenshots of some of the other stuff you want change and we may be able to help you.
