Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hey everyone,

I wanted to get new look for my laptop so I have downloaded some themes. Also I have deleted some too. Now I can just apply classic style. When I want to change it to other themes I got error message. If someone knows how can I fix this please let me know.

Thank you.

I think that you have deleted some basic themes files from your computer and you need to install them again to solve your problem. Also you need to know what kind of themes you use in your PC and what was their type they are not virus infected and are free of virus. You can  run a full virus scan to check any possible problem. After you have checked all of files and folders then you need to install the themes again so you can install the windows themes from you windows CD. You need to follow these steps to then install your themes.

  • Go to START and then to control panel.
  • After you have the control panel then you need to go to ADD remove programs.
  • Then go to add remove system component. And then choose accessories. Choose the first option again.
  • Here you will see the computer themes. you need to check this box and then you will be able to install your themes.
