If so just google windows xp themes etc.

Well, some things are better off to Google. Why ask a question when you can get the answer yourself?

Well, we get our answers anyway by searching (usually Google)...
Here are some links.
http://www.themexp.org/
http://www.xptheme.info/
http://customize.org/xpthemes
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/d...p/default.mspx

All I did is some plain and simple Googling.
Now, do a quick scan through the ToS and browse reviews to make sure they're legit, safe and secure sites.
