    Here's one I did and can't seem to fix.
    I used an app called double killer. I should have backed up my system , or created a restore point before i used it.
    After it found all the double files, i asked it to delete the first copy of each double, simple. right?
    Unfortunately, it changed my desktop back to the old classic windows style. I went to properties to get back the windows XP style. Ya know, the one that it comes with, soft round edges, microsoft blue. Unfortunately it won't change back, even though I keep choosing that style and hitting apply.
    Now normally I wouldn't be too concerned about this, but the wife is gettin tired of me foolin around with the PC and would appreciate if I could return back to the style she prefers.
    Anyone wanna help me save my marriage?...heh j/k

    For the sake of your marriage does the program create backups like it should ?

    Use XP's system restore, to a date prior to this.

    You have probably unwisely removed a file from a directory where it is currently needed, while leaving the same copy somewhere it's not presently used.
