    I recently reformated my computer, reinstalled all my previous apps from my external hard drive and after installing Service Pack 2 I get this error when I try to change my Visual Style. I uninstalled the program I was using to change themes( Starskin ). And the error still came up after I restarted. Help?

    Do a drive search for uxtheme.dll

    The active copy is in the system32 folder, there should be a backup copy in c:\windows\servicepackfiles\I386

    If the backup copy is a later version than the one in the system32 folder, just copy it over and overwrite it.

    The SP2 version I have is 6.0.2900.2180 and is 214 kb in size

    By the way, you may want to reinstall your Starskin Theme before running the patch.
