I have followed this instruction.

Steps to configure Windows to use a Normal startup state

After you used the clean boot to resolve your problem, you can follow these steps to configure Windows XP to start normally.

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type msconfig, and then click OK.
    The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed.
  3. Click the General tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services, and then click OK.
  4. When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.

After doing this my taskbar remains tan in color, its not a huge deal, but I'm curious why it wont reset properly.

I think the colour of your taskbar is more something to do with the themes you are using rather than resetting the services back to normal.


Right click the desktop and go into properties and set the themes to Windows standard. Maybe that will cure the problem
