Hi, I have a dell inspiron laptop. It appears that since the last windows update the vista theme has disappeared. The icons are all ok but the menus and tabs have turned into windows classic mode. The only themes that are available are classic, current and browse. I have tried restore to before the update to no avail. Anybody with advise would be much appreciated. Thanks
PS did you know that all the effects and transitions sap the guts out of your system, just to make it look pretty. That's the first thing I do with a New PC or Laptop. Turn them all off. If I want flowers I will buy real ones
Thanks Woolwel, the run through on the Vista Themes did the trick, although it did say that the vista theme could not run as the themes service was not running. I checked in services and it was, so I restarted the service and hey presto, Vista theme works.
Woodchip, I know that 'flowers' sap the system, but as the laptop is only used for word docs and excel, why not have it looking pretty?
