    well, not exactly. what happened is that the typical 3-dimensional blue taskbars and window heads have become flat.the taskbar is somewhat yellowish,but not gray as in the classic theme,and the window heads look like the type we had in dosbased programs running in win 98,solid blue but with no fades unlike in classic theme.in fact, when i change the theme to classic theme,it changes correctly and behaves normally.when i change it back to default theme,i get the theme i described earlier.

    hope i could make myself clear...plz help me :( :(

    - sys restore to previous date
    - check display settings
    - reinstall video drivers
    - run chkdsk
