I've been cleaning my system from a spysheriff infection and now my layout in XP is all messed up.
It look more or less like an older version... all the blue is gone...
Any idea how to solve this?
Think it was caused during 'Cleanup' or 'Ewido'.

Great site,

Hello :thumbsup:

You mean the "classic" theme instead of the XP style?

Does this help you out ? :
* rightclick on your desktop > choose "properties" > tab "Appearances"
* choose "Windows XP style" under windows and buttons
* and under color-combination: "blue"
* click apply and OK.

Good luck :flowers:

Thanks for the quick answer
But the problem seems to be that under 'windows and buttons' I have only one selection: windows classic

Try this....

Repair/Replace a corrupt/damaged Luna Theme in Windows XP

Your Luna Theme is probably corrupt or missing.

1. Download Resources.zip from Kelly's Korner
  • If for some reason you can not download it directly from above, go HERE
  • Scroll down the page to #187.
  • On the right side you will see Restore Luna theme-Restore Classic theme.
  • Right-click on the Restore Luna theme link and select Save As and save it to your desktop.
  • Depending how your machine is set up, you will either see a Winzip file called Resources, or a WinXP Zip folder called Resources.
2. Whichever it is, unzip the resources.zip file and find the file named Luna.msstyles... the file size will be 4,089 kbytes.

3. Move this file to C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Luna (don't move it anywhere else!)

4. You may already have the same Luna file listed in this folder, but you must replace it with the new one.

5. REBOOT your system

6. Go to Display Properties and you should be able to choose the XP theme again

Note: If more that one file in C:\Window\Resources is corrupted, you could also very well replace all the files

Let us know if that helps.

Thanks a lot Joshuacat!

The file wasn't there.
Now I can concentrate again on getting rid of addware...
