I installed sp1 and it trashed my theme, my start bar, taskbar, basically changed the look of my machine totally. i thought it was a good thing that i saved the 'uninstall files' but after i uninstalled, i still have the same problems.

is anyone else having this problem? and how do I fix it?

thanks - xp forum rocks!

All it did was replace the 'uxtheme.dll' with a new one that doesn't allow using non-Microsoft visual styles. There's a thread about how to replace it again so all your themes will work.
