    Looks like the program is locked. It is not freeware. If you have purchased it reenter the code. If not you might want to take a look at 'patchxp'. Look in the themes section. The thread is stuck to the top, there abouts.

    That link is always on the fritz.

    Download the patch here. Hopefully.

    Uninstall style xp then run the patch.

    I do this> Put the style (theme) into windows/resources/themes. Then click the msstyle file. That will bring up display properties where you can set the wall paper. Some are self installing which makes it a lot easier.

    This is the xp luna msstyle file. See pic.
    If what you are using don't have msstlye files in them try downloading a visual style from www.themexp.org

    If it is like what I've been explaining click the msstyle file. That will bring up display properties where you can choose the wall paper.

    1/ Click the msstyle file

    2/ That brings up display properties with the style you clicked ready to be applied

    3/ Manually set the wall paper

    4/ Apply
