thanks for reply!! what it actually is,is a changing back to an old display appearance like windows classic or xp which of course completely does away with my custom APPEARANCE! resolution stays the same.can you or any one help??!! thanks in advance.
Does it happen while you're on the computer, or after it has been shut down?
Hi a10,this changing of appearance happens while i am busy working w/apps on my desktop.the windows logo pops up in the middle of the screen w/a message of PLEASE WAIT,then the whole desktop goes grey dim for a few seconds and then all windows revert to old windows classic or xp appearance.the only things that do not change are the desktop pictures and the screensaver apps. active/inactive titlbars,scrollbars,background,caption buttons,window borders, font colors all revert!these parimeters have been set under display properties/appearance tab/advanced but something in windows OS takes charge. HELP! Thanks for your diligance! Chuck.
