I recently used stylexp and topthemexp to customize my desktop, however when I tried to reverse back to what I had(windows xp default), The tiny words under each fonts of the desktop does not go with the wallpaper. For example, when I go to properties, then desktop, I choose a Background, eg Bliss, and the background does change, but the background of the little words beneath the fonts does not change. How can I fix that?

If you installed the themes less than three weeks ago try to use System Restore to undo the changes made to your system state.

Start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Choose a date earlier than the date you installed the themes.

By the way - the McAfee site advisor warns to use caution on the TGTSoft StyleXP site.

Did you do a system backup before you installed this stuff?

that is the problem I have, I use system restore quite often, however I also clean them quite often, therefore I undo the changes now. BTW, I found the themes and icons are stored in c:/windows, eg the Resources folder. But I am still struggling to revert my computer back to what it was like.

Are you saying the icon's text has a background color to them, and you can't get rid of it?
If that's the problem, see if this helps:

Right click My Computer / Properties / Advanced /
Under Performance, click the Settings button, and select the Visual Effects tab.
Scroll to the bottom, and make sure there is a check next to, Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop.
Click Apply.
Click OK.

If that doesn't work, try:

Right click on Desktop.
Click on Arrange Icons By.
Uncheck Lock Web Items On Desktop.

And if that doesn't work, try:

Click Start.
Click Control Panel.
Click Appearance and Themes.
Click Display.
Click Desktop tab.
Click the Customize Desktop... button.
Click the Web tab.
Uncheck, and delete, everything you find in there, except for My Current Home Page.
Click OK.
Click Apply.
Click OK.
