    Hi everyone,

    I have just got a new computer to muck around on and edit some stuff on and i decided to put xp on it but once i had installed it the start menu bar will only appear in classic windows form and not in the new xp form. Its not affecting the computer just bugging me because it doesn't look very nice. Could someone please help me.

    Thanks in Advance

    did you try right-clicking on the taskbar and clicking properties then click the Start menu tab and make sure Start menu is selected and not Classic Start menu?

    Bigstev & Prior Tak, Go to the link below and under the letter "T" scroll down to "Themes (Won't Load or only Windows Classic is listed)" where you'll find several possible fixes.
