Windows Classic theme is selected in Display Properties, but the computer has started booting up with the Classic desktop but with the task bar in those horrible Windows XP colours and design.
Changing to the XP theme and back to Classic in the Properties window returns the task bar to Classic.
How can I overcome this annoyance?
It's a new, but a little dated, machine, and is believed not to have been used by its previous owners, with a freshly installed operating system.
This probem has arisen since installing various applications. Whether or not that is relevant, I couldn't say.
