Hi everyone, pls can someone help me im desperate im moments away from formatting my computer.

My computer keeps giving me the error saying that the file uxtheme.dll is not found try to install it to fix the problem. I get no windows though at all as it does not allow Explorer to boot at all all i get is a screen with my background and nothing else.
Is there a way to reinstall this file through the recovery console on my XP cd?????? There must be.

Im running windows Xp SP2

Hello muppet_3000...

Can you boot into windows using either "Safe Mode" or "Last known good configuration" from the "Advanced Startup Menu"? To get the Advanced menu, tap the F8 key during the boot sequence.

Click Start, then Run, type system32 and press "Enter". In the System32 folder, see if you can locate the file uxtheme.dll (should be towards the bottom). Right click on it, if you find it, and choose "Delete"...accept the change.

Download the attached zip file and save it to your desktop. Right click on it and choose "Extract All". Extract it to c:\windows\system32. Reboot.

Do you still get the error after doing this?

Attached File  uxtheme.zip   111.85KB   144 downloads
