Color & Appearance Settings Issue - Vista Home Premium

by ganeshkulkarni / July 26, 2009 3:06 PM PDT

I have noticed that each time I click Color Settings in Personalise menu, it crashes explorer.exe
Previously, I had trouble with Color Settings, as I could not see the default colors in the Color Settings (it opened but no default colors; now it does not open and crashes explorer).
Please suggest me a solution.
Please see this link to see discussion on technet forum about my earlier (no default colors) issue. I had tried every measure suggested there but it did not solve problem. I also remember installing the registry value provided in the link below.

I use Vista Home Premium on HP Pavilion DV 2519TU notebook.

Thanx in advance.

Some issues like this can never be resolved.

At least not for free. I'm sure some Microsofty knows something but I'm finding damage by both registry cleaners and malware that runs deeps and it's cheaper to just restore the machine with the restore media. Time and costs are why we do that. If this is worth fixing call up MSFT and get the plastic out.

If you didn't get it, registry cleaners are usually why I see such glitches.
