I'm currently using Windows XP Home.
This isn't so much a problem as an annoyance.
I started noticing this problem RIGHT after running CleanUp! awhile back. It was my first time running CleanUp! on this computer, a laptop.
Anyways, its hard for me to describe the problem (annoyance) exactly so I'll post a picture also.

The thing is, after I ran CleanUp! my XP style was automatically changed to the Classic Style. I looked up on how to solve the problem along with other possible problems of running the program itself, and figured out at least how to restore the Luna Style files that CleanUp! most likely got rid of. However, after I reverted back to the XP Style I noticed some Tabs and Buttons didn't change back to the style as well. I have been searching for a way to fix it, but to no avail. So I am resorting to asking for others help. :thumbsup:

Anyways, here's an image of the problem I have:

Its probably not a problem to some people, but my head must be off and I like things to be consistent. I noticed the problem after trying to tweak some settings in order for XP to run a bit faster. The "System Properties" window is fine as it is, however the "Display Properties" window's TABS and BUTTONS are all in the Classic Style, where they are not highlighted when moused over and they are not white like the "System Properties" TABS and BUTTONS are.

Hopefully someone with expertise in XP Display Settings can help because I've tried almost everything and mostly to no avail. I am sorry in advance if I fail to do something I should have before in this post, and I will provide more information to see this is thoroughly detailed in explanation. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: oh, and this isn't limited to the two windows above, I just used them as examples.
