HELP! SP2 Is Messing With Me!

Damn u microsoft :mad:

Ok I'm sure everyone knows about patching the Uxtheme to use those awesome visual styles, anyways before I installed SP2 it worked perfectly. Now when I restart my pc windows changes it to windows classic and I cant select any other theme aside from the regular ones.

What is the problem?

Most likely SP2 overwrote the uxtheme.dll file with the newer SP2 version of the same file

You should use Neowin's UXTheme patcher:
But that's the problem, I already did that. When I restart it goes back to classic. It dosnt do it every time but once it does I have to re-patch.
read all the directions....when Windows ask you that a system file needs to be replaced, hit cancel.
and make sure your using the sp2 version, that was my problem
Gotta love how people blame their own mistakes on Microsoft.:lol:
I found out that you have to go in safe mode so SP2 dosnt keep overwrighting the UxTheme.dll file. Works like a charm now.
