hi, recently having problems with xp pro changing to classic style and no option to get it to xp style. managed to fix it, but not sure how, or why it's happening. also, taskbar icons (open windows) are now only have size and i can't read them when open. can you help, thanks.

the windows XP style requires a service called themes to be running. to check the settings for this,click Start , Run, type services.msc and press enter. in the service management console, right click the Themes service and select properties. Ensure the startup type is set to automatic, if it is not your computer will revert to classic style,the next time it is started.
