Default Windows XP Blue Theme

Hi, my brother was just moved to a new computer at work and the computer's theme is set to Windows Classic Style. He wants it to be set to the XP Blue Theme (Windows XP's default), but it appears to have been deleted or something. How would he be able to install the blue theme onto his computer?

Typically that's done through the control panel. However, if the system admin at work has disabled changing of that theme, your brother will not be able to change it on his own.

Hey TheMajor, thanks, that's exactly what was wrong.
