Recently I added an additional hard drive to my computer. I transfered all the data from the old drive to the new drive then made the new drive the boot drive. Then the following problem began:
I set my desktop settings to "classic" via the display properties screen. After I shut down, not restart, the windows xp style reappears on my taskbar, windows explorer and outlook express. The start up menu will stay in the classic style. One of the things that is a bit confusing is that it doesn't do it everytime I shut down. Yesterday everything started up fine, this morning it went back to the windows xp style. It may revert to the windows xp style for 3-4 days in a row then one day everything starts up normal and I'm in 100% classic mode which is what I want.
Got any ideas............................Thanks, Tom
