I'm looking for a list or some links to get 7 features on XP, most importantly the explorer and the taskbar pinning of icons (lord have mercy I'm dying for that one!)

Can any one link me to this these types of tweaks or major tweaking site? Thanks a lot.

Oh by the way, I have Windows 7, but I'm just trying to use XP more for the gaming and what not.

There are very few performance hits when moving from XP to Vista and even fewer moving from XP to 7 so just make the move. You won't regret it, I have been gaming on XP, Vista and 7 and I wouldn't move away from 7.
