Default getting back default windows themes???

my default windows themes have disappeared =(

usually when i go to change the themes i see the windows classic theme, the windows xp themes but now all i see is these

is there any way to get those themes back because i really dont want to use the "space" theme where my cursor is a rocket ship.

Default Re: getting back default windows themes???

Do you have like WindowBlinds software or anything like it that you're using? If so, deselect any option to "Run at startup" or similar within the programs option window. It's better just to uninstall it.

If that doesn't apply, try restoring the XP theme by opening up Services. Click on Start/Run/Type: services.msc and click OK. Scroll down and double click Themes. Set to Automatic under Startup type and then click the Start button. When Themes starts, close Services. Another thing you can try is to open System Properties. Right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced tab. Under Performance, go to Settings button/Visual Effects tab. Select, Use Visual Styles On Windows And Buttons/Apply and then click OK to finish.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
