    Royale Noir does the toolbars pretty well.

    Look up a tutorial on replacing uxtheme.dll and "skin" windows for free with the build in functionality that Microsoft designed.

    I'm lost. You're still running Windows 2000? Yeesh. XP actually boots faster than W2k on my older machines, once the extra pretty crap is turned off.

    I hope you are joking and read the 8 posts above yours before replying... The OP meant to say skin XP, not skip ;)

    He didn't correct the spelling mistake. I did notice he was talking about skinning, which seemed like a non-sequitur, but I know from experience that W2k can also be skinned a little bit, so it made me even more confused.
