Q: browser image in classic windows theme

Hi

I am using win 7 64 bit

I got tired of the Ie 9 with the blurry text and its many ways to try and fix it with no results. So i switched to firefox and it was solved right away.

But now i discover another problem. Because i like to use windows classic theme with the grey menu bar. But when i use firefox browser and click on the bookmark menu, then it leaves a image or "print" of the bookmark window in my start menu.

Look at the screenshot were you can see some remaining text of my bookmark window.

I can remove it when i adjust my start menu but it comes back when i use the bookmarks again.

This only happens in firefox but when i change the theme to win 7 or any other then it dosent happens.

How do i fix this ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello!
I've recently installed an XP theme for my Vista. When I restarted the computer, it changed into the Windows Classic Theme, and it won't let me get the Vista theme back.
I can't even find the Vista theme on my computer. When I try to add a new theme, it wouldn't let me.
If it helps, my computer is Windows Vista Home Premium, upgraded to Service Pack 1, and 32-bit operating system.

I hope someone can help me. I ran the patcher that came with this Vista theme SoulGlass by ~bubito on deviantART and now some windows have Aero and others have what looks like a messed up windows classic theme. I tried using vista glazz to patch it back. I tried restarting multiple times. I tried switching to classic theme and back. Nothing works. I have Vista Ultimate 64. Here's a screenshot.

Thanks for your time.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Hello. I've recently reformatted my computer and since then I've been having this rather annoying problem. When I select classic theme from the personalization menu then try to switch back to my custom theme, the only thing that changes is the color scheme but nothing else after the "Please Wait" dialog. Restarting the computer is the only way to make custom themes work again.

I've tried running the troubleshooter for aero when it happens but it doesn't find any issues.

Some of my games require transparency/aero to be completely off to reduce input delay/other issues. And since I close/open the game sometimes several times, I like to keep it on classic as long as I'm in my gaming session.

Side question: Does anyone know how to make custom log on screen background stick? Mine likes to revert back to default randomly.

Are you trying to use a 3rd party custom theme?

For the logon screen I used Option 1 of this tutorial Log On Screen - Change it have never reverted back.

Hi, I use Windows 7 and would like to upgrade to Windows 10, but in Windows 10 there is no gray classic theme known from Windows 98, which is still supported on Windows 7. I found some tutorials how to do it on Windows 8 and 10, but none of those were functional. Is there any way to have the good old Windows classic theme on Windows 10?

Thanks.

Is there any info about the grey classic Windows theme still being included with Windows 8?
And are there any public numbers on how many people actually use it, like there were for the usage of the start menu?

On my notebook, which has not the best screen with its really huge pixels and low resolution (1368x768 at 15"), Aero just doesn't look that good and takes up too much space.

Um... Are you a resolution freak? I am running the same resolution at 15.6" and it seems fine...
But in regards to what you said, I can't find the "Windows Classic" Theme on my installation. Just has Windows Basic, and the High Contrast options... So I'd say they're trying to leave legacy behind (at least for personal installations), it's still there on server versions.

I'm having an annoying issue with my windows XP (SP3). Whenever I try to switch back to the Windows Classic theme, it doesn't work right -- it displays, but in the "big font" just like Luna. It displays properly if I turn on the guest account and use that, but it doesn't work on my regular account.

Here's a screenshot of what it looks like if I turn on Classic:

I seem to have trouble running the Windows Classic Theme. Everytime I do it I get random error messages while I am on the net. And when I restart the computer my sound seems to not work sometimes and a error message says Generic Host process for Win32 Services something ruther. But now since I have changed back the the Windows XP Theme it seems just fine. I am wanting it on Windows Classic because it takes less resources and I can run more things. Do you have any ideas of how to fix this because it would really help me. Oh by the way I researched the problem and found a hotfix and installed it but I am still receiving the errors and stuff.

Do you have SP2 and all subsequent updates including the updates for Internet Explorer?

Also - please give us the exact error code that you get when using Internet Explorer. "Generic Host process for Win32 Services something ruther" is not a valid, descriptive Windows error code and doesn't tell us what's causing the errror or how to even look where to fix it.

I'm trying to create a smooth Windows Classic theme.

The highlights and shadows around the theme are irritating me and I would like to get rid of them.

In the picture below I highlighted what I'm talking about.

Does anyone know how to get rid of these?

I have attempted to locate the setting in Window Color and Appearance, but have been unsuccessful.

A:Customizing Windows 7 Classic Theme

A quick reply as I might not be able to get into this deeper. It is possible to do so, there is a variable for the global highlight color, which is stored in the theme file (%SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\Resources\Ease of Access Themes\classic.theme). I am looking at things right now, I'll post again if it's working.
edit: the theme system is more sophisticated than I thought, see the next post (also, properties not listed in the theme file fall back to their standards)

Well, I solved the problem after crashing windows by uninstalling SP2.

I guess I'll just stay away from SP2 for awhile longer!

A:Classic theme and windows explorer problems

Two things come to mind:

1. Do a Recovery to see if you can fix the problem. Just remember if you do a Recovery you may have to reinstall some programs.

2. Restart and go into "Safe Mode - F8" to see if you can change into Aero, or Windows & Basic.

Have you rebooted? I know it seems trivial, but sometimes trying the obvious first works.It almost sounds like you are in Safe Mode... What is safe mode? In Safe Mode, all visual effects are disabled (i.e. you can't change themes), and only basic drivers are loaded (sound, Wi-Fi, etc. are usually disabled).

A:Cannot Use The Luna Theme, Stuck In Windows Classic Style

Hi dddarrenccc, Welcome to Bleeping Computer. This is a total shot in the dark, but, perhaps you have the performance options set to not show visual styles on windows and buttons.Go to Control Panel-> System-> Advanced tab-> Performance settings-> then scroll down to find a box with "Use visual styles on windows and buttons". If this box is checked, then the problem isn't my first guess, if unchecked, check it, hit apply, then ok. If it does not automatically change then go to change it as you would or through display and appearance. I hope this has helped you in some way.

A:taskbar stays in windows classic after importing a new theme

well, first thing that comes to mind; maybe you are attempting to change the theme using a custom one. the custom themes require you to patch windows with either UXtender, or UXtheme (depending on your windows version). there are other patches.

I have the windows classic theme turned on; and I?ve noticed a peculiarity of it.

Items become invisible while being dragged, and then reappear when ?dropped?.

Is there a way to make it so items are visible when drug, when using windows classic theme?

Thanks.

My Dell Inspiron 9200 (laptop) with WinXP Pro cannot connect to a known-good internet connection via Cat5 cable, but is able to connect wirelessly.

There is no malware on-board, and no hardware conflicts in Device Manager. The Local Area Connection 2 says "Limited Connectivity" (Broadcom 440x Integrated Controller)

Also, for some reason, the XP theme is stuck in "Classic". I've over-written the "Luna" Theme with a good one, and have selected it to no effect. The "Themes" Service is running normally in Administrative Tools. The option to change the "Windows and buttons" from "Windows Classic Style" is limited to ONLY Windows Classic Style.

Any help fixing either of these problems would be appreciated.

First of all, sorry for my bad english.

I'm here, cuz i can't find the answer anywhere.
Today, i figured out, that the normal xp theme is boring, so i started looking for new themes, i installed the uxtheme.dll patcher as people said, then i downloaded a nice theme what I liked, so, it's all right, but when i turn my machine off and on, i always see the ugly windows classic theme again, with some of my theme's colours in it. After that, i can simply get my theme back, by clicking on it's msstyle file, but after the next logon, it's the classic again. Please, help me with this, I don't wanna live with my old xp style : /

A:Windows always resets to classic, after i install a new theme and reload

1.There are many different ways to adding themes, I suggest you try Style XP

2.In order for UX to work you have to patch it and restart before you put a theme.

So i suggest patching it again, restarting your computer then adding the theme.

How do I enable it so that when I drag items on my desktop I see the icons as opposed to it just being invisible. Why would MS remove this from Win 7 ?

A:Icons invisible while dragging (with windows classic theme)

I believe this is normal behavior when using the classic theme. It is by design, who knows why. You can confirm this setting:

Right click on Computer> Select properties> On the left side click on Advanced system settings>
Performance box> Settings> Visual Effects tab, make sure Show window contents while dragging is checked

Greetings. When hovering over a taskbar item such as for an open internet browser, I get a pop-up that is ~3x the length of the taskbar button (the properties of which are set to never combine & with labels showing). At the right side of these popups there is a red X.

If I have a few Windows Explorer windows open, if I hover over one explorer item on the taskbar the popup will display all explorer items in a stacked manner (one on top of the other), again with the option to close out each item via a red X.

Is there any way to turn this feature off?

Also, when items are selected in the taskbar, the button changes to the same color as I am using for text. What window color setting (if any) do I change to alter the color active buttons display in?

Hi,

Since about 3 days now my pc (windows 7 ultimate x64) has stopped working..
It will bootup normally, but when i log in to my account, the theme will be classic, the internet connection has gone walkabout and the computer won't run or open up any programs, like call of duty.. To make matters worse, system recovery wont work, says something about volume shadow copy, and if i turn that on, all my restore points are gone (i haven't made a backup yet). Not even malwarebytes has been able to fix the problem, so either this is a really evil virus or it's something else, but it totally ruined my PC

please, i really need some help with this one!!

Hello, I have a big problem with my themes. My themes in Windows vista are all copies of "Windows Vista" And "Windows Classic" themes that are completely blank in the box where the picture should be. When I select ANY theme, it is in the Windows 98 theme, and I have tried stopping the Themes and starting it, setting it to automatic, but none of those work. Can someone please help?
 

A:Windows Vista Home Edition Stuck in 98 Classic Theme

Vista prevents changing from classic theme when you are low on resources. You'd need to give some more information.

Is your system running slow of late?

Is your c: drive full? How big is it? How much RAM do you have (control panel/system)?

Check control panel > system >advanced system settings> advanced tab > performance settings and check what windows is set to.

Then click advanced tab (still in performance settings) and look how large your virtual memory/paging file is.

You might need to clean house a bit. Run disk cleanup (start/all programs/accessories/system tools). Uninstall programs you don't want or use (contol panel/programs-programs and features/uninstall a program).

If you haven't defragged for a while do that when you get a chance (same location as disk cleanup)

Welcome to the Vista Forums.

I have been using a personally customized Windows Classic display theme for well over a decade on various Windows operating systems. It's in a file with the title My Preferred Display.Theme. Is there a folder in Windows 7 where I could put this theme file in order to access it from the Win7 display personalization area? I've tried using Personalize>Windows Classic but have not been able to configure the exact look I like.

Thanks!

So i have this little problem when i try to use the windows classic theme. The problem is, when i change my theme to windows classic from the ''Personalization" menu and then try to click the Windows Startbutton it just doesn't do anything.. All other things work fine with that but just not the startbutton. And with the original (Windows 7 Basic) theme i don't have any problems..

Heres a video so you can undestand better:

Btw in the video you can't really see the startbutton but it is there, its just some bug with the recording program i think..

A:get Windows Classic Theme in Windows 8

Many things were removed from Windows 7. Like the classic menu and the option to change all system fonts.
The 7 start menu became this blocky thing that could not be resized. The group policy editor was removed from 7 premium. Windows 7 is not everything it is touted to be. It has grey hairs and needs a service pack.
Using the classic theme is hard core plain jane and flat. If one wears a bowtie, it may be usable.

Hello,

Is the Windows Classic Look Theme (the theme introduced in Windows 95) included in Windows 10 release version?
If not, is there a way to integrate the theme and have it work properly?

I assume the Quick Launch bar is still available in Windows 10. Correct?

Thank you.

A:Classic theme in Win 8.0 ?

You can get different styles from a good many sites that will transform your win 8 to whatever you want (though I have yet to see a classic style). I have several I have downloaded that will transform 8 to win 7, Vista, XP, etc. There are a great many out there just go into what ever search engine you use and type in "Skinning Windows 8," and you will get a huge amount of stuff to choice from. . .Good Luck.

Oh, BTW, "Welcome to the Eight Forums.". . .

If you are looking for a Start Menu vs. Start Screen there are several excellent apps out there that will do what you want. One of the best and probably the most used is "Classic Shell" which allows you to use Win 8 like it was any of the older flavors of Windows.

A:XP Theme Help? Theme went to Classic???

Many applications create a system restore point right before they are installed.

1. Back up all of your can't lose files
2. Complete a system restore to a time before you installed the theme manager.
3. Run windows and AV updates.

When I go to themes and I select windows classic, I get an error message: "Theme could not load, unspecified error", then it shows the location of the theme file, which is: C:/windows/resources/themes/windows classic.theme

What is the problem here?
Also, when I go into display properties and select the appearance tab, and under the windows and buttons scroll down, it says the visual styles could not be loaded because the file failed to load. It only does it with the classic, everything else works.

Since a support bloke installed a new CPU and an extra drive, AND made it known that he hates the Classic theme and thinks I should be using the XP theme, I'm completely unable - through any normal means, that is - to retain the Classic theme.
On bootup, it shows Classic on the desktop but has the XP theme's menu bar right across the bottom; as well, if I open IE8, all the menus are black blodges.
Yes, I know I can change back to full Classic within Settings/Display: what I'm after is to return to having the Classic theme as my default, and not have to go through this silly routine every morning.
It's been ascertained that there's something RIB telling the system to present the XP theme (only partially successfully) - presumably put there by my former support bloke - and I wonder if anyone knows what this might be...?

If I change my theme to "Classic" and chose not to use the "Welcome Screen," I get a log-in screen with a "bright blue-white color."

However, once I'm logged in, any window I open has a "dark blue gradient color." How do I get all windows to have the same "bight blue-white color"?

For example (see attached JPG) , this is the theme I want all the time, not just for log-in purposes.

Hello!

I recently was getting tired of the old Windows XP Theme, so I decided to go find some nice ones. I found one on deviantArt, and the theme wouldn't work! I did a little research, and found out that I needed to patch a system file called uxtheme.dll. I used a program called VistaGlazz to do it, and it all went well and right now I'm using the theme I wanted. Well, one problem. When my computer starts up, the theme has reverted back to Windows Classic. I of course have to go back and apply the theme again, but that's going to be very annoying if I have to do that on EVERY startup. It never did this when I used a few other themes, such as the Zune theme and the Royal Noir themes.

Help please?

I'm running Windows XP Professional SP3.

Well, idk if this is a virus or what. I dont think it is. My theme keeps reverting back to classic. When i go to prop. and switch it back, my other themes are deleted. exp. Windows xp. So i downloaded StyleXP to change themes. This helps once in a while but when it does, windows classic stays. How do i fix this?

P.s. I hope i posted right :( if not, please tell me how to fix it then.

Check if Windows is set to 'best performance':

Start > Run > Control Panel (switch to claissic view) > System > Advanced > Performance. if it is set to best performance, then set it to best appearance.

Windows 7 64 bit

Whenever trying to install or uninstall any program I am greeted with a msi.dll problem.
Whenever my computer is started or randomly when running the Windows Aero theme is dropped and classic is used.
Constant explorer.exe freezes and timeouts.
Unable to open uninstall programs tab.

I attempted to use Ccleaner to run a registry fix this didn't help the problem, I attempted to uninstall what I thought was the network problem culprit (sendori)
Revouninstaller can't even open because the msi.dll error.

Any logs needed to help speed this process? Thanks guys.

Hello,

I'm still using XP and I always use the classic style.
Recently, I've been thinking about switching to Vista 64 someday, but I've got a question about the classic theme:

I know that the theme is available, but does it give me complete access to all the functions available? I think I heard somewhere that some things won't work properly because Vista's GUI just differs very much from the older ones, and so there are functions that are not accessible anymore.

Is that true? Can the use of the classic theme really narrow my set of functionalities?

Thanks for your answers!

A:Classic Theme - works completely?

What funtions are you going to try and access?
I have found vista has more functionality than XP.
It is just looking in the right place.

If someone does not come by with a technical method to make the change, that your prefer, I would just go with system restore. That is what it is for and what I would try first.

I'm not absolutely sure about this but I think you have to use an Aero theme to be able to use Vsync. There are other features that require Aero.

Hello,

I was doing some work on my computer today when suddenly it restarted and came up with a blue screen with some writing on it. This happens every so often but it's never caused this problem before, usually it just restarts and is fine.

After the blue screen the computer restarted itself but it took alot longer then normal to startup, when it had finally started everything it was in windows classic theme. I tried to change it back to normal XP theme by right clicking the desktop > properties and going to appearance but classic theme is the only option there.

I've scanned my computer with all the stuff i've got, i've cleared all the temp stuff and defragged my HD but it's still in classic theme and it still takes a really long time to startup.

Why did this happen? Can i fix it? If so how?

Thanks.

We all know that Aero glass guzzles battery juice, so I naturally always kept my computer on Windows classic theme. Now, I can remember from my childhood the like of Windows 98, but in today's world, it just seems a little bit disappointing. In combination with other techniques, such a frequent defrags, unnecessary process and service killing, and turning the resolution down to the minimum, I have managed to get the battery life from the rated 3 hours to about 6 hours.

My question is, if I switched to Windows 7 Basic instead of Windows 7 classic, would it really make a noticeable difference in my battery life. Also, how would I go about changing the title bars and taskbar from that disgusting shade of blue to a much more tasteful black? I know I can get the effect by going to Aero and just turning off the transparency, but that still is wasting resources with the window preview feature. Can someone enlighten me?

Thanks

My notification bar icons all turn to a horrible quality. All of this started happening to me when I had to update SP1. If anyone else is having the same problem, or if anyone knows a fix feel free to pitch in.

I have already ran a system restore, the problem still persists.

Thanks,

A:Solved: *****Installed Theme Stuck in Classic Mode Problem*****

I've tried this tutorial, and I still can't remove the explorer toolbar. I use a customized windows classic theme, and I think this might be the reason its not working for me. So, I found another thread with this post and I'm thinking of trying to edit the shell32.dll and see if this method will remove the explorer toolbar.

Before I do this, I was wondering if anyone knew if this method will remove the explorer toolbar on a customized windows classic theme. I have my customized windows classic theme to resemble the Windows 95/98 grey theme. Does anyone know if this method works on a customized classic theme?

A:Can shell32.dll remove explorer toolbar using custom classic theme?

I have finally removed this explorer toolbar. I just followed the instructions from that thread in my first post and edited the shell32.dll. It is now gone. w00t!

So if anyone else has trouble removing that toolbar using that shellstyle.dll from the tutorial from my first post, just edit the shell32.dll instead and it will remove it.

Running Windows 7 SP1, re-installed just a couple of days ago.
I have UxStyle Core installed, along with a few custom themes. Default themes work perfectly, but once I switch back to any custom theme, it forces me back to Classic. The themes worked before, but today they started acting up.
This also happened on my old installation, and I tried everything to solve it - sadly, not even sfc /scannow helped. That is partially the reason why I reinstalled my OS.

A factor might also be that I'm using TeamViewer a lot, because the themes started malfunctioning while I was accessing my computer through it.

Since today the computer is suddenly slow from the start-up already; When it comes to the "configuring windows" screen it takes about a minute instead of the second to get to the login screen. Then when I log in, everything is in the classic theme. A warning also pop-ups during start-up.

Here's a screenshot where you see the task bar in classic theme while it should be aero theme. You also see there the warning on start-up. It basically says it can't connect with a Windows server, namely the System Event Notification Service.
http://i50.tinypic.com/2a8nfyc.jpg

After start-up other problems are occurring.
First of all, parts of the computer has become slow. The most notable is right-clicking on the desktop (and only the desktop!), it will take ages before the right-click menu is loaded.
Secondly, I can not change the theme, was my initial thought to do. All themes except the classic themes are greyed out and not selectable.
Thirdly, the antivirus, Avira Antivir, starts up disabled, and whatever I try, I can not enable it. This started to happen after a few start-ups.

So yeah, quite bothersome problems. I have tried the following solutions:
- Scan my computer with Avira. I've scanned every single file my computer has, but my computer didn't find any viruses. This scan was done before Avira started acting weird.
- System recovery. I first send it back to yesterday, which was right before an Windows update. The computer was fixed after the system recovery, but after a reboot every problem was back. Now for some reason none of the system recovery points are working, including the first one I tried.

So far I have one possible conclusion: It's the Windows update from yesterday. It installed only one update, which was a definition for Windows Defender, KB915597 definition 1.129.1102.0 to be precise. It's also the only difference between today and yesterday, and before and after the first system recovery. Sadly this update re-installs itself immediately after a system recovery, and I can't find anything about this update on google, so I can't say for sure this is the cause.

Anyone knows how and why this happens and how to fix this?

My wife just go a new Win 10 laptop and she wants me to make the UI look as much as possible like her Win 7 desktop system. She has the Classic theme, which is a background all one color, very simple window and menu settings etc.

Sorry that this is such a n00bish question. I'm just learning to deal with all the complexities and changes in Win 10.

I was wondering how to change the Windows classic logon image?

Specifically, when you logon and you have to press control-alt-delete. Can the image that appears at that screen be changed at all? Size, bitmap, etc.

I'm tired of the boring Windows XP logon.

Thanks!

Hi all,

For the past few days, if not a week now, I've noticed that when I switch to Basic theme for RAM intesive programs like Adobe After Effects, Windows is quite slow, almost running as though my laptop is 1GB not 2GB RAM.
Though when I switch to Aero theme, Windows is only slightly slower with Adobe After Effects running.

My laptop is Compaq Presario CQ56, 2GB shared graphics and I can't explain why the Basic theme is running slow whereas Aero is responding faster, so much so, programs tend to stop responding more frequently on Basic.

I have run MSE, MBAM and SAS (MSE realtime, others are standalone mode) and found no viruses and I update them all either daily or every two days.

I only have Realtek Audio and MSE on Startup so I can't figure out why this happening!

Thanks in advance for any insight as to what's happened/happening

A:Windows 7 Home Premium basic theme is slow but aero theme is fast?

How much dedicated video memory does the laptop have?
It's conceivably possible that you are actually dumping more onto the system reserved ram by turning it off If the configuration is sharing ram with your video card anyway.

That looks like you have it in Classic mode instead of Aero. Your Start button says "Start". Mine is round and does not say Start. == Right click on the desktop and then click "Personalize". Go into Themes and pick one that says "Aero". Let us know if that helps.
