switched on Computer and started Windows Explorer
(XP Home)
- to find all the text in BOLD - and even task bar etc,. in bold - the dates were also reversed to year first 2004,08,07 format in all windows and calender ----
Did system restore which took off last program installed etc - but text and date still unaltered -------
had tried display settings but they seemed unnaltered and country was set right - but date was in year firast order and no way to change it
--------------
Solution = some how?? the theme had changed from Windows Classic (my prefered option) to a similar named one - changed that back and the BOLD text was sorted - but I had to set machine to United States(English)and apply then change back to UK (English)and this rearranged the date - So all Hunky Dory again -
So if it happens to you - you know what to do ;)
