  1. Hello happymatei,
    It sounds like it changed your theme file.

    Try this to revert to the default look:
    Right click on the desktop
    Click Properties
    If you've modified you theme before you may want to save your current settings (the save as button) before changing.
    On the drop down box choose XP theme.
    And Click OK

    This will change it to the regular xp look.
  2. did that
    still looks the same

    so the problem is the writing in everything has changed
    it looks different and the way it is, it bothers your eyes

    i tried to change from the text style in windows ( desktop > properties > etc ) and still no change

    thanks for the ideea, but sadly i need something else
    need more suggestions please

    i went into ati catalist and didnt find anything about texts

  4. Hi, I'm anyone....


    Click Start>Control Panel>Accessibility options>Display>Use High Contrast>High Contrast #1 Large>Apply>Ok

    If you don't like it, uncheck "Use High Contrast" then "Apply" and it will all go back to normal again.

    Oh... You have That problem....

    Close all programs, making the desktop show.

    Right-Click an open area of the desktop, select Properties.

    Click the Appearance tab

    Click Advanced

    Click the Item drop-down box and select Active Window

    Below the Item box, it says "Font" click that drop-down and select the font you like. Next to it is the size. 8 is default but you can make it anything available. Next to that is the font color, help yourself to any color imaginable, white is the default.

    Click Ok when done, click Apply and then click Ok to finalize the deal.

    In the Item drop-down there are many different things you have this same control over. Have fun.
