Is there a way to make Windows 7 theme look (cont..)

Hey, my friend has recently gotten a new laptop, which has windows 7, he wants to try and make the whole general look of it look like windows XP, is there a way to do this?

Would appreciate any replies,

Well, he could just install xp instead of win7.
Why would he want that anyway ? win7 looks way better then xp ever has, even the standard look.
If he likes xp more, then he'd better use xp.

But anyway, through google, there are many guides regarding this :

Most XP users are trying to look like 7, not the other way around.
