  1. i reinstalled my comp a week ago with a copy of xp sp1.
    i normally installed everything, and patched my uxtheme.dll (with windowsx patcher), all was fine. but when windows upgraded to SP2 i became stuck in windows classic style!! when i try to load any style, even xp style, it says it was not possible to load the file.
    i tried depatching and patching again, and nothing works.
    can anyone help me?

    (please dont say: reinstall windows)

    There are specific versions of the uxtheme.dll for each service pack. Did you get the one meant for service pack 2 ?

    the "windowsx uxtheme patcher" patches the uxtheme.dll according to the windows version on your computer. and i repatched my uxtheme.dll with a xp2 build 2600 (the current build of my comp), and it dind solve the problem. i guess some other file is currupted or something.
    when i try to load any style i get a error message saying that rundll32 encountered a problem and will be closed.
