I had a virus that appears to have altered my task menu, and now I can't get
the old one back. It has changed to classic view (along with open windows),
but I liked the XP themes. I tried changing the properties of the task menu,
but it stays the same. How can I get the XP theme back??

Make sure that the Themes service is started and running. Click Start/Run
and type Services.msc

Double-click Themes
Set it's startup mode to Automatic
Start the service manually.

-and/or-

Right-click an empty area of the desktop, and then click Properties
In the Themes tab, select Windows XP
Click OK

I tried both; neither worked. What I really want is the task menu to have the
XP theme (blue and 'bubble' look).

The XP theme for appearance had been missing, but I've got it now. Thank you
for your help.
