    hey

    i recently updated xp with teh service pack 1. when i rebooted the computer, my themes no longer worked. im guessing this is something to do with the dll files i had to change before.

    i downloaded patchxp, it didnt work, searched google and ran a few other programs that were supposed to fix it, and nothing. any ideas?

    cheers
    andy.

    If you have an OEM install of XP then have a look HERE.

    Is Windows File Protection kicking in? If so, ignore by canceling when it pops up.

    Read that through. Make sure you disable or uninstall StyleXP or other various patches first (before running PatchXP.exe).

    And like xsiv said, if you are running OEM, read the URL provided.
