Windows Classic Style

By lara_cy ·
Hey all,

A month back i got a virus that required me to log on several times in safe mode in order to remove it, good news is virus is gone, bad news is it seems i've lost all my display appearance options in *Properties* when i right click on the desktop. Basically, all i'm left with in the Appearance tab is *Windows Classic Style" and my taskbar/start don't look at XP style.

Anyone have any clue how to bring back all my other appearance options, and also i think this may mean my graphic drivers have been deleted? Not sure..

Thanks in advance

Maybe it has set some policies, to restore them, look in gpedit.msc and in User Config, Admin Template, Control Panel, Display you can turn on the missing options again.

The virus crupt your user's configgration files.
so you have to creat new USER. when you creat a new user it will creat new settings and creat new files from default user's. and thus yours dektop disply return to xp displya

when you say create a new user, do you mean a new account user ? because i tried that, i added a new user and made that the administrator, but nothing changed. I'm not sure if that's what you meant.
