At random intervals throughout the day, my computer's will change from Windows XP style to Windows Classic style. I then have to change it back by going into display properties. Why is this happening? How can I fix this? It's not a virus, trojan, spyware, etc. I have scanned w/ Avast!, McAfee, Norton, TrendMicro, Panda, Spy Bot, AdAware, and Pareto Logic anti spyware. I have done a clean install. I have installed same programs though.
Background Applications -- Avast! Kerio, ParetoLogic AS

I have WinXP SP2.

Please help me fix this! 5 other forums were unable to solve this.

Could I have the specifications on your hardware.

XP Style does take up more resources. That might be part of your problem.

Also go into control panel> system> advanced> And on performance what it set to.
