    XP Themes

    Today I had to reinstall Windows XP as a system file apparently corrupted. Of course, my theme reverted to the old windows 98 look. I went to change my theme but found nothing came up, and the theme wouldn't change or even register I had it, kind of like if you don't have the UxTheme patcher or whatever. I tried both using the UxTheme installer and the replacing file method, but still nothing's changed so I'm rocking the Windows 98 style D:

    Help is appreciated.

    I kind of have the same problem. But I didn't reinstall anything, I just restarted my computer.

    Re: XP Themes

    Thanks for trying to help guys, first thing I did was restart but of course nothing changed. I discovered I can use the default windows theme, Royale and Royale Noir. So pretty much only Windows Themes, nothing custom.

    Thanks, unfortunately it didn't work. Themes was set to Automatic, I changed it to Manual and opened one of my themes like usual but nothing changed like before.

    Edit: Alright, new problem :l
    I tried to replace the uxtheme dll file again, now it won't even work with Windows themes, including the default XP theme. Stuck on Windows Classic for good now. Here's what happens when I click on the Luna theme:
