Right click an empty part of your desk top and then Properties.In "Settings" see what your colour quality is set to.16 or 32 would be ok.If that is not the answer check your "appearances" and set it up where you want.If you have XP you can do System Restore to a date when it was OK.

I assume you're using XP? If that's the case then right click on the desktop and choose 'Properties' then click on the 'Appearance' tab. In the 'Windows and buttons' box choose 'Windows XP style'.

nope none of that worked, and ive had bad experiences with system restore, so im not going to do that, there must be an easier way.

i thought there'd be a simple answer to this one?

windows xp style is not there, only windows classic??

and i was just considering system restore but i cant find it, even still there should be an easier way, do you think the theme was accidently removed?

if thats the case can i download it again?

The theme is part of the normal XP installation. Have you installed any software or updated drivers recently (graphics drivers)?

i dont think so???

System restore...Start/All Programmes/Accessories/System tools/bottom entry.There should be nothing to fear from using this method.
