Thought I’d post a quick entry on how to restore your Windows XP theme if it goes awry. I recently just fixed my sister’s computer by removing a ton of Malware and Viruses from it, and after I was done the Windows XP theme changed to the classic theme. I went to change it back in Window’s Display Properties, but to my chargrin it wasn’t even listed as an option! So after much tinkering around and comparing of her PC to laptop, I realized the theme must be corrupted.
Enough with explanations, how do we fix it? Well follow these easy steps:
- Download this: Luna.zip
- Open the Zip file and place all the contents in C:\Windows\resources\themes overwriting anything else that’s in there
- Restart the computer and your theme should be back in ‘Display Properties’ !
Any questions then just ask, hope this helps!
