Hi,

This morning I turned my PC on to find that the Windows XP theme was set to the old grey dull version.

I went to try and change this but the Display Properties box now has all of the tabs missing.

I have searched the web but dont seem to be able to figure out how to get them back?

Thanks

Is this just a stand alone machine? Or part of a large network?

The only thing I can think of is running a program we used call cleanup yesterday, it is a standalone machine in a workgroup :)

I have tried running that vbs file but that hasn't seemed to help either from the link.

Thanks
