I have recently runned windows in safe mode in order to fix a few issues. However, when I logged back in into normal mode my blue-green Xp theme dissapeared. I have restored part of it (the start menu) by downloading the resources file, however my folders still have the white background and is missing the blue on the right of the folder. Would someone be able to help me??? ;)

:tazz: Thanks

Try goin to Display properties and change the appearance colors that you see for the necessary toolbar headings.

Right click on desktop>Properties>appearance> select the tool bar change colors to blue and green as required. Think that should solve it.

Vins.

Download and open commontasks.reg (from Kelly's Korner) to merge with your registry.
Your problem will be solved.
