Today I decided to change desktop themes,(something I never do). I went to control panrl clicked desktop themes and there were none listed. I them thought maybe I had none loaded, put in my win 98 disk and they showed they were loaded. I uninstalled, reinstalled but they still do not show up when I click on desktop themes in the control panel. When I do a find under files and folders they show up. If I try to open them up and click on them I get the message"C:\Program\Files\ Plus themes. exe caused an acess violationin module unknown at 0155:00000198. See attched message. Can you help me?

I tried the 2 things listed on the ms website but nothing helped. I found the regesty entry and deleted it, reinstalled the themes and they still do not show up when I click on desk top themesin the control panel. The only one that comes up is curreny settings. They are also not listed when I go to find> folders>themes. I looked on the WIN98 install disk and can't find them listed on it. Where are they? Any help will be appreciated.

DoyceJ,

Well I was talking about the page that did not show anything using Netscape and was going to do a screen shot to show you but it shows up ok in Netscape now.:confused:


blactruck,

When you go to control and clicked desktop themes and click on the drop down to pick a theme have a other to pick from? If so you can use it to pick from the themes in your theme folder.

When I click on the drop down menu the only choice is other. When I click on it there are no other choices listed. I still do not understand the ansewer you gave about seeing it in Explorer and Netscape.

I tried the 2nd fix that you suggested in your last post because it most matched the conditions(office 2000 etc.) even though the error messages were not the same. I renamed the file .old, rebooted and I now have all the desktop themes. THANK YOU
You guys always have come through for me.

blactruck,

Hey great you got it fix.

And DoyceJ answered you about nescape.


DoyceJ,

I guess I jumped the gun about I.E., but you do see more and more sites now days that you need to have your java on and or have I.E. to get into a site.
