Click the Start button.
Click RUN.
Type in sfc /scannow.
There is a space between the c & the /.

Click OK.
It takes a while to run.
It may prompt you to insert the xp CD.

Possibly a corrupt themeui.dll file.
Install any third party screen savers or desktop apps\eye candy lately?

I have sort of the same problem, EXCEPT when I click "Display" in the Control Panel, all I get is the single window showing the theme... not tabs. I've run the suggested sc, also Registry Mechanic. Still can't get to it so I can reset my screen saver. Does anyone have any suggestions?
