    XP sites

    Thanks Norm!

    I have been working with XP embedded and its really stripped down, so I am constantly running into issues where pieces and parts are missing from the full blown OS.

    I didn't see another Tweak site for XP. Here's another. Since I didn't see it... http://www.tweak3d.net . It has been a while since I checked the site, but it should have tweaks and such.
    Windows XP SP2, Dell OptiPlex GX60, W/ 40 GB WD HDD, Internal Intel integrated Graphics, Soundmax Digital Audio, Northwoood 1.80 GHz 400 MHz FSB Celeron D Processor, not HT Enabled (Upgradeable to 2.0), Office XP, SP1, Intel Pro 100 M/VE Network Connections adapter, 3Com Ethernet Adapter....and I dun remember what else. Oh yeah, Norton Antivirus 2005 Professional Edition.
