I decided some time ago to change my theme to classic. Now I want to change
back to xp style and it's disappeared! I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Could I have uninstalled it by accident? It isn't where it's supposed to be
in the properties theme tab. I am stumped!

Windows Xp Style (Luna Theme) is Missing

- You can download the resources, reg file and help file in one
simple package from here:

XP_Theme_Fix.zip 700 KB
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?j4yeom2jt2m


When you open 'Display Properties-->Appearance' you find that
the 'Windows XP Style' theme is missing from the 'Windows and
buttons:' drop down window.


First try these two tips. If they don't work go on to the tutorial.

Tip #1

1. Right-click the desktop's 'My Computer' icon and select Properties.
2. Open the 'Advanced' tab and click the 'Settings' button under
'Performance'.
3. On the 'Visual Effects' tab check the "Use visual styles on windows
and buttons" box.
4. Apply, OK, OK.

Tip #2

1. Open Services, open the Run box and enter: services.msc
2. Scroll down to 'Themes', right-click it and select Properties.
3. Set the 'Startup type' to Automatic. Click the 'Start' button.
4. Apply, OK.


This tutorial will show you how to fix the missing Luna theme.

Instructions:

1. Download the Luna theme resource files from here:

Line 187, right side: "Restore Luna Theme"
Webpage: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
Download: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits/Resources.zip

2. Extract the zip file to C:\WINDOWS\
(Answer yes if asked to overwrite)

3. Copy below and paste into Notepad:
