I installed Bootmaster, didn't like it and uninstalled it. It required me to reboot and when I did I couldn't get into XP. Figured out that Bootmaster switched my partitions around, so I ran FDISK from a Win98 and switched partitioned back.
When I logged into XP the Classic view was the ONLY view available.
I searched these forums and did the exercises everyone commonly suggested.
I went to kellys-korner and replaced the files and registry entries, checked that services was started, verified group policies, and eventually did a system restore from CD.
Initially, I couldn't even change to the Luna themes, but then after the restore I can switch to Windows XP theme; however, when I log out/reboot/come back from standby the Classic view is back!
I should mention I have two accounts and the second account is fine. The first account was were I installed Bootmaster.
Can't figure out the problem here!!! Can anyone !?
