When I select different settings to make up a theme it returns to the settings prior to my selections.

Are you right clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties then themes, choosing one and clicking Apply ?

Many thanks for your responce. Yes I am doing everything you say, also I am selecting colours sizes etc. etc. The new theme is displayed for about ten minutes then it reverts back to the theme before I made the changes.

Are you on XP, can you run a system file check ?

  rawprawn 17:25 09 Mar 2005

Or even try a system restore ?

Have not tried "file check" I will have to get my "Dummies" book out. Yes have run System Restore.
I don'nt want to speak too soon but it seems a lot better today, many thanks

To help you with system file check which I don't think will be in the "dummies" book. Go to Start / type sfc /scannow (Note the space between sfc and / )hit enter, you will probably need your XP CD, if it asks for it put it in and hit OK it will check all the system files on your computer for errors. It will not delete or corrupt any data, it is safe.
