Hello spikeshinizzle and welcome to BC.

I find the Appearance setting in Display Properties confusing. It took me a while to figure out that you need to select the item you want to modify and then, and only then, will your options be available. So, if you want to change the appearance of, say, the Inactive Window, you need to click that in the area at the top to get your options. Its the same with Window text, Active window, etc. Everything in the examples below "Appearance" and above "Windows and buttons" is clickable.

Try clicking on "themes" and see if XP is in there.

Hi,
I have the EXACT same problem after cleaning Smitfraud from my PC. Did you ever get it resolved?

Hi ajax15

You'll probably have a little more luck with responses by posting a new topic with your problem. Try to include as much info as you can including your OS.
