Microsoft PowerToys

Microsoft has a very small amount of decent "official" add-ons for Windows XP. They call it PowerToys. Here are some you might want to use:

Alt-Tab Replacement
With this PowerToy, in addition to seeing the icon of the application window you are switching to, you will also see a preview of the page. This helps particularly when multiple sessions of an application are open.

Tweak UI
This PowerToy gives you access to system settings that are not exposed in the Windows XP default user interface, including mouse settings, Explorer settings, taskbar settings, and more.

Power Calculator
With this PowerToy you can graph and evaluate functions as well as perform many different types of conversions.

SyncToy can help you copy, move, and synchronize different directories.

I already know the PowerToys, but for the ones who don't: Great add-on's. Especially the Tweak UI, offers a _lot_ of settings.
