Okay. I have searched through here and know someone out there knows what my problem is. The problem is the others with my problem all seem to have something else wrong!! LOL
Anyway. My desktop has been stolen, so that my background is a blue screen. When I go to properties it says its a modified theme. I turn it back to windows xp or something, and it doesn't change and next time I look, its back on modified theme. After reading through the blogs, I tried several different virus scans but to no avail. I also made another user profile and that one can have whatever desktop I want, but the main one is still a blue background.
I have seen replies that seem to know exactly what this is, but I cannot find anywhere where they say what to do!!
Thanks for your great website!!!
