Question

'Applying visual styles error'


I want to change the theme of my computer..
i.e.When right clicking on the desktop and clicking on properties the display properties box pops up..

Although when i try and change it to the Windows XP theme, it gives me this error 'the visual styles could not be applied'..

What am i supposed to do to sort this out? Please help!!

My System
To try the easiest thing first, Click Here to open a Kelly's Korner page.

Scroll down to line 187 and in the right-hand column, click on "Restore Luna Theme" to download a zip file. You may have to right click it and left click "Save Target As" or, if using Firefox, "Save link as."

Once you have it downloaded, unzip it to the C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes folder. Then see if things work in Display Properties.

Even if this is not the problem, it won't hurt to do it. All it does is replace a possibly damaged Luna theme folder with an undamaged copy.
