    I have a weird problem, nothing critical, just very annoying. Not sure when it started, but...

    when I select Desktop Properties, and then Appearance, and Advanced, the Advanced window shows a Classic Theme, even though I am using the XP theme. Hard to explain until you see the image...

    any ideas???

    i think its supposed to do that, it doesn the same thing on mine anyway... maybe for simplicity, or microsoft forgot to put in the other window as well....

    but it doesn't change the colors for the silver theme anywayz... odd, maybe its just for the default windows theme, and not the fancy ones...

    I've had TONS of problems when it comes to that window displaying the correct theme or changes, sometimes it just ends up as black boxes, i've just written it off as a annoying bug :)

    Thanks... I couldnt remember if it had always been that way or not.

    It does that because the only way to change any of those elements is if you are using the classic theme.
