    I can't change my computers settings to change my task bar, and buttons from being gray to blue.

    I try to change it in appearance in desk top properties, but it's only giving me the choice of windows classic for task bar, and button appearance

    The themes service may not be running, or the luna theme has become corrupted.

    Click Start | Run type services.msc and press enter
    Scroll down to Themes and make sure startup type is set to Automatic and Status is Started.

    If that doesn't do it, goto Kelly's Korner, #187 on the right, Restore Luna Theme. Download the zip file.

    Extract the files to the Windows folder (If using WinZip make sure Use folder names is checked).

    Reboot, and you should be able to select the Windows XP Style under Windows and Buttons:
