I recently was getting tired of the old Windows XP Theme, so I decided to go find some nice ones. I found one on deviantArt, and the theme wouldn't work! I did a little research, and found out that I needed to patch a system file called uxtheme.dll. I used a program called VistaGlazz to do it, and it all went well and right now I'm using the theme I wanted. Well, one problem. When my computer starts up, the theme has reverted back to Windows Classic. I of course have to go back and apply the theme again, but that's going to be very annoying if I have to do that on EVERY startup. It never did this when I used a few other themes, such as the Zune theme and the Royal Noir themes.

Help please?

I'm running Windows XP Professional SP3.
