I thought it would be nice to have a Mac theme on my Vista Home Premium screen. I made the mistake of installing a theme called Vista OSX 09. I realised my machine was running more slowly so tried to revert to one of the Microsoft themes but with limited success, I now have a combination of Windows and Apple icons and I am still doubtful about the performance. There does not seem to be a method of uninstalling the Theme.

I thought I would do a Sytem Restore to a date before the OSX 09 theme was installed but I found all my Restore Points had been deleted, which made me more suspicious and a HiJack This log showed at least one strange entry so I followed your instructions to use DDS and attach a log for your asssessment.

Thank you for your help

I have managed to correct this problem by running the System File Checker tool descibed in Microsoft KB 936212 using Administrator rights.

It compared the system files with the reference configuration and replaced any that did not match, in the process removing the files which had been modified by the Vista OSX 09 program.

All back to normal now thank goodness. :thumbup2:
