Perhaps somebody here knows the cure for this little problem My XP Pro Sustem is experencing.

I like setting my Desktop Appearance to Widows classic Style

SO I click aply let it appearance change then click ok

This will stay as long as i have the computer turned on

Then I turn off the computer for a few hours, Come back to it and turn it on and the screen Appearance reverts back to windows XP Style

Any ideas in this one?

thanks

Are you shutting the computer off by using the Start Menu>Turn Off Computer feature or just pushing the power button on the case?

BUmmer because that was my only thought as to why the setting might not be being saved, sorry.

I am sure someone else will come along soon with some other ideas
