The Windows 9x look is better anyway.
Try right-clicking the desktop, select Properties, choose the Appearance tab, and select "Windows XP style" from the first drop-down menu. Additional work may be necessary depending on the tweak used, but OK your way out and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps,
A few weeks ago I tweaked my system. (I think in an effort to increase speed.) One of the changes I made was to make the taskbar/start button simpler graphically. It is currently kind of a grayish-brown like the Firefox browser window. Now I'm wanting to return to the blue XP bar and button, but I cannot remember how I got where I am so that I can go back. Any help?
