Windows is looking old
Ok I have windows xp home edition and recently, aka two days ago, I was prompted to revalidate windows because of significant hardware changes, even though I haven't even opened my computer case in over a year!

Anyway I revalidated it over the phone and so now thats done.

But now every time I start up the computer and I log into windows with my username my theme is gone. I had it set to the blue taskbar with the bliss backround. And now the toolbar looks like the old windows but my backround is fine.

Also when I go into windows task manager and to the processes the username is system But I logged in as alphabet junction<-- my mom's store's name.

Also the printer doesn't work...:\

Here is a pic of the windows task manager

ALso here is a thread that I've already made and it has more info and pictures. I hope to get some help! Please!

Thread I've already made

I already checked that though I have no clue why it would be. And so no it isn't:\

And my printer won't work

This is a seperate place than the control panel..just want to eliminate stuff :) I know there are policies that force the classic theme, but on HOME you cant use the gpedit.exe tool sooo...
