Can I make Windows 7 Pro make a look and feel like XP?  THis client is very picky to the changes and freaks out anything new.  
Is there a way to adjust it so it looks like older interface?

As a beta tester of 7, I tried this, and there is no way I could find to make 7 look, act and feel like XP.  If you are as picky as I am, then the answer is no, the only way to do this is run an XP VM in the win7 shell.

This may do a credible job for you.
Still a work in progress and you may need to edit the ini file to have some of the options.
Read the docs at setup.
