I don't think that you can change the windows explorer.

Is there a specific reason why you want this? You can just turn on classic folders and remove a bunch of the new views etc.
It still looks different from 2003 but not enough that you'd bother changing it.

Still miss the simplicity of the old windows explorer, the classic view doesn't do it for me.

Sorry to tell you that there isn't a way to get it back. Go a head and close the question out.
