    Question Theme Problems

    Hiya,

    I downloaded and installed this theme and now when I try to uninstall it I get this. :-/
    I can't find the theme on the programs list, only in the place I saved the download to, and that's what happens when I click it and press Yes when it asks if I'd like to uninstall the theme.



    And now, the actual default Vista theme is gone!


    Any help on how I can uninstall this Mac theme and get the default one back, please?

    Try a System Restore to before you downloaded the incompatible program.

    I think you have had a problem with this Mac style theme because it seems to
    have been released before SP1 for Vista. As Malke said, System Restore
    would be your best option at this point. And if you want your desktop to
    look like a Mac's, get a Mac - or run MacOSX on your PC.

    How would I perform a system restore now, then? And wouldn't that remove (some of my downloaded) programs?

    To run System Restore, go to the Start Orb and in the Start Search box type
    "System Restore" without the quotes. System Restore will appear in the
    Programs result. Click on it, allow the UAC prompt, and follow the wizard.

    If you have a Norton Antivirus/Security program installed, disable it before
    running System Restore.

    The publisher states that the Minimum requirements for installing this Pack is Windows Vista 32 Bit SP1. I trust you met these requirements.

    Using Theme Settings, apply the Windows Classic Theme.

    Open Control Panel > Programs & Features > Uninstall VistaOSX > Reboot.

    Check in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder whether you can see an Aero folder and an Aero theme file. If you can, use theme settings to apply it.

    If you dont see it, System Restore back to a time prior to the installation of this Pack. Most probably, this pack would have created a system restore point before its installation.

    If it still doesnt help you, PM me and I will send you the original Aero theme/folder which you may paste in your Themes folder.

    It would appear that you aren't smart enough to follow basic
    directions so perhaps you're going to have to learn to live with your
    problem.
    Your opinion means nothing to me, tbh.
