ok so the other day i was infected with spysheriff... and it totally sucked, but i got it all cleaned up and taken care of now i am back to normal with no problems... except one

i currently have xp home as an OS, and prior to all of this i was using the Xp style appearance setting for all windows and buttons.

but now when i go to display properties and go to appearances and try and change it back... the only style listed is windows classic style.

so how can i change it back to XP?
