    windows stuck in classic view

    i ran a junk file cleaner that when finished said thatfiles had been changed and to insert the disc with service pack 2 to change them back.
    as i do'nt have sp2 on disc i could not do this,now my taskbar has turned grey in colour as in classic view and i can't change it back to how it was..
    p.s. i'm running xp pro
    many thanks in advance mark..

    you've lost the theme service (uxtheme.dll)

    try installing a patched uxtheme - google for "uxtheme multi patcher 5.0", see if that helps
