Yes it is possible but I wouldn't recommend it, it can cause some system errors and stuff, but if you still wish to try it, then here you go: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...ion-Pack.shtml

Yes I have had a bad experience with the transformation pack too. So basically the best way to get the vista theme is to actually get vista, I think it's the safest way to go about this.

same ^
if you really wanted a kind of vista look id get the uxtheme.dll patch and just a random vista theme, obviously you wont get the whole affect but your pc wont slow down or mess up, its just 3rd party ms styles.

The real Vista taskbar, I tried. It ended up having a purple bar, because there was not enough pixels or something. You can skin Vista now, you know.
