First time here and it looks good! My query: I upgraded from Windows 98 SE to Windows XP Professional. I thought I would change the desktop, window and taskbar by changing the theme in Appearence. I did the following.. Windows and buttons: Windows XP style Color scheme: Silver It worked fine but when I shutdown (and/or restart), it became Windows Classic style! Why is this? I tried using save as.. button where I saved the theme with my name -- no difference! Help would be appreciated thanks! PS: one more query: in Device Manager, there is a "problem" with 'Multimedia Video Controller' under 'Other devices'. What is it? I guess I need to update the driver but Windows XP could not find it (either through CD or the internet).
