Default Need major help

I was going to change the look of my desktop to resemble Vista. I used a uxtheme.dll program but something happened and it instead now looks like a yellow colored version of win98. There is no theme but classic in the display properties now. Could anyone tell me how to get the normal blue XP look back? Or do a system restore if that would help?

lol (sorry couldnt resist) , i doubt system restore will help but might be worth a shot, youll probably have to do a repair install see this guide http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Now I'm laughing at myself. I just did a reboot and it was back. Now I feel stupid...Oh well, everyone does stupid things sometimes.
