    I am having taskbar problems once again! It went from the pretty XP bar with the brilliant colors to this ole, gray basic gray task bar. I went to services.msc and double clicked themes; it was set to start and automatic.

    I don't know what else to do to! Can someone please help me?

    Thanks, Carla

    Right click on your desktop and select Properties. Themes tab, do you have Windows XP [Modified] selected? It sounds as it you have Windows Classic
    selected.
