Hi all,
I've had some major problems lately. Fake virus on the desktop (which g2g had a fix for), and a spooler subsystem issue. Now, I have lost my desktop themes. All I have to choose from are the basics that come with XP such as XP modified etc. I'm missing all of the others like Azul, serenity, etc. Has this happened to anyone else and is there a fix?
Thanks in advance.

Maybe it is disabled.

To enable it do this


find "themes", right click "properties"

under startup type click "automatic" then click "start" and "ok"

will enable theming and it should make the default xp theme come up in display properties
