I just reinstalled windows 98 as an alternative operating system in my desktop. 

I opted for windows XP theme for windows 98(got the instructions from Microsoft website). 

However, every time I reboot my system the theme reverts to Windows 98. 

Can anybody help?

My system details are as follows:

Operating system: 98/XP

RAM: 512MB

Processor: Intel  P2

Thanks in advance

Hello.

Your problem may persist because of the following reasons.

1. As you are installing two operating systems simultaneously, the PC may not be taking the same theme for the two operating systems.

2. The other reason may be because you have installed windows 98 after installing windows xp.

3. Or the theme that you have installed is not compatible with Windows98

Thank you.

Hello.

You may need to disable windows active desktop.

  • Click on start button and then go to your control panel
  • Double click the display button
  • Go to the web tab and click it
  • Deselect the option: show web content on my active desktop.

The problem might also be the theme itself. You can download Windows 98 revolution pack.

It will give Windows 98 the same look and feel as Windows XP. It also fixes some security issues and replaces the Ctrl + Alt + delete command with more advanced options.
