Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

There may be a fix here --
This page has alot of XP fixes
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_...
Some require the download of a VBS, or Regedits file.
So, read at the top of that page--
"To use the Regedits" or "To use the VBS files"

Then go to line 214, then click item in right hand column.

geezaa69, Go to the link below and under the letter "T" scroll down to "Themes (Won't Load or only Windows Classic is listed)" and you'll find several possible fixes. It sounds like your Luna theme is missing and you'll see a fix for that.
