Lets do some double checking!

Make sure Luna.Theme inside the Resources and Themes folders

Make sure shellstyle.dll in all 3 folders that are inside the C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Luna\Shell folder


Now right Click the Desktop and Select Properties

Under Themes,make sure its set to WindowsXP (Modified)

Under Appearance,make sure that Windows and Buttons is set to WindowsXP Style


Post back and let me know what you find out?

Well crap,I am running out of ideas but we need to try the idea of one of my fellow posters!


I will attach a Copy of my luna.msstyles to this post in a Zip folder!


Download and Unzip!

Delete your copy of luna.msstyles but dont empty the recycle bin just yet!

Move the file you just downloaded to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Luna

Once the new file is in the Luna Folder-> Double Click luna.msstyles and the Apperance Window should be opened and the style should be added!

Restart the PC and try to fix the Apperance again!

Post back and let me know?
