Re: Themes in XP...
all depends i guess. if your using windowblinds or something then yes, as its a ram hogger. if your using the default xp ones or ones with the uxtheme patch then i doubt it would slow it down much. i would only say this is a problem if you have a low amount of ram. otherwise little things like this wont make much of a difference.
