Is this a home or office computer? Company IT departments quite often limit the user rights of employees, which could include changing themes.

Its just a home computer but I do have a lot of things on my computer as I am a volunteer worker for quite a few organisation so keep lots of record of letters out etc. I thought maybe my computer is over loaded and not enough memory to change the themes

Something specific must have changed for this to happen. Did it coincide with you installing any new programs? Are you getting any specific warnings or error messages?

No, no warnings. I have microsoft security essentials and Mcafee security scan plus so I am sure they would have warned me of any strange things going on in the computer.. I can live without the themes just annoying to have them there and when I click on a them I have nothing but a black screen

maybe I should go through all of what I have on the computer andget rid of things I don't use that much and as you say there may be something that was downloaded that changed or hindered the themes working. I do appreciate you help.... Rachel

No idea what you mean...

By the way, you shouldn't have two antivirus programs at the same time. Get rid of MacAfee and keep MSE.

Also, are you 100% sure this is a legal, final release version of Windows? Did you buy it from a reputable source? Windows will default to a black screen after a while if it is not authentic or not properly activated.

thanks so much, I have the fellow who put the windows on coming after christmas. I bought through a major store here so will not have to pay for it to be checked. I do appreciate your help I suppose in hind sight I should have gone straight to Harvey Norman store instead of panicing and searching the net... MANY MANY THANKS
