Hey I Was Wondering If Anyone Could Help Me Out Here..

I Installed A Windows Vista Transformation Pack....I Didn't Like The GUI So I Un-Installed... Then When Windows Re-Booted I Was Left With The Windows "Classic" Theme, And I Can No Longer Change Back To Windows XP Theme,

Thanks If You Can Help

Is the Themes service running?

To check go to the start menu and select Run. Type services.msc and scroll down to Themes. Make sure it is set to Automatic and that it is started. If it isn't double click on it and set it to automatic. You may have to reboot to get it to take effect.

If it's running or you started it and you still can't change the theme, let me know.

Hi JohnWilson...

Download the attached file and save it to your desktop. Extract the files to C:\Windows\Resources accepting any prompts to replace the files already there.

Try changing themes.
