Have a Win XP Home PC on SP3 that has just started to revert to the Windows Classic Style on reboot. In addition, the screen resolution is shrunk from 1024x768 to 640x480. Not life threatening, but annoying nonetheless. I have googled the Windows Class problem and it seems I'm not alone. I have specifically tried the solution listed here: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/top10faqs.htm i.e edit the registry using the reg file 214 and all "other checkpoints" are verified OK. However, on reboot the problem persists... can anyone point me in the right direction? Many thanks.
