I don't think it is possible to achieve Windows Vista Aero on Windows XP. You can try downloading this PowerToy called Alt+Tab replacement to make a similar effect (sort of), but it's definitely not the same:




For the sidebar, I do recommend using a third-party one, but since you mentioned you didn't want to, I don't know what to tell you. It's a bit of a system resource hog, especially when indexing, but you can try the Google Sidebar:




For Vista Thumbnails, I've never seen them before, but you can change the icon of certain applications and even the My Documents/My Music/My Pictures folder using TweakUI, available as a PowerToy from Microsoft.


As for using Hex Editor to modify Windows XP so that the components will run, I don't think it will work because:


1. Windows Vista software is designed for Windows Vista.

2. It is a violation of the Microsoft EULA in some way I think.


Hope this helps.
