If you want to install and Un-install then use this....

Killdisk:

But really you should not do this too many times as it mucks up the hdd(s).
It takes around 3 to 4 hours to give a good clean. Or use a Linux disk such as Ubuntu.
ubuntu:
http://www.ubuntu.com/
With this you just put into your drive and install it, when installed put in your Windows disk. :)

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
If this information is useful, please mark as helpful. Thanks.

If I am reading this correctly

What you appear to be asking is can you uninstall one of the Vista Look A Like utilities that is available for download to make XP look like Vista. Is that correct?

If it is you can remove any application through the Add Remove Option in the Control Panel just like you can with any other program utility or application.

If you mean can you remove Vista after overwriting XP the answer is still yes but you'll need to use a Disc Wiping Utility like Kill Disc or Boot & Nuke to wipe the HDD and then reinstall XP to a clean blank HDD.

As the Vista Upgrade isn't installed through Windows but actually overwrites XP you can not uninstall it as such from within Windows you need to wipe the HDD reinstall XP and then recover your Data and Associated Applications from their original Install Media and your Backup. If you plan on installing the Vista Upgrade you should first check your system and software load with the Vista Upgrade Adviser to see what will work under Vista and what needs replacing.
