    This is what I used to get a vista theme.
    Link

    I found the instructions easy to follow, then again computers are kinda my thing. Hopefully you can figure it out.

    I was looking at the link I gave you and decided that I would take the time to explain the whole process better.

    The first thing you need to do is change a system file so you will be able to use the Vista theme. All you do is follow the steps outlined on this page

    After you have done that and restarted you computer. You'll want the actual Vista theme. You can get that from here
    It's a zip so if you don't have winzip or another achieve program you can find one here

    When you go to use the Vista theme just double click the theme and say ok.

    I would recommend stardock windowblinds, thats what I got on my
    windows xp pro computer. It was easy to install, hasn't crashed
    my computer and makes your desktop look alot better, it changes
    the look of your start button all your backgrounds etc. And the website
    has 100's of different themes to use. There is even a windows vista
    theme. Try out the free demo to see if it's what you are looking
    for. If you are looking for the flip folders type of look, where
    you can flip through all the open applications like in Vista, try
    topdesk from otaku software.
