No, it's set to Windows XP on themes but there is no XP version in the appearance tab.

but did you change the theme, and change it back?

The reason I asked is that the reg file you downloaded blanked the registry settings for the theme, but changing then changing back should re-establish them....the files are untouched by his patch.

Well, I don't think I did. I hadn't altered my themes at all while I was following his instructions to clean up my computer. But when I had finished, I realised the theme had changed, so when I put it back on the XP theme, I realised it was still slightly different than before I had done anything, so I just assumed it was the registry change that had affected it, but I had no idea. I wondered if there was an easy way of re-installing the theme to get it back to how it was before.
Thanks,
Pete
