Hi, i'm kinda desperate atm. My laptop has this annoying habit of reverting back to windows standard/classic theme after almost
every restart. I said almost
as after 2/3 and sometimes even more, my aero theme correctly appeared. After another restart right after that, the problem occurs all over again.
The search function in the start menu and windows explorer also 'failed to initialize
' when in the said windows standard/classic mode.
I figured that this might have something to do with my user profile as I have the 'User Profile Service service failed the login. User profile cannot be loaded' problem once very recently but I've fixed it using the tutorial in this forum. The windows standard/classic theme problem had been on for quite a while back, before the user profile problem.
Before all this happened, I've had this 'C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable...' problem. I fixed that by copying all my files and folders in my C:\Users\[Username] folder to the location above and replacing all the files including desktop.ini. It is only after this that I've had the windows standard/classic theme problem.
I couldn't help but wonder if somehow my user profile has got something to do with it? Windows system restore could not fix this problem.
By the way, I'm using a modified aero theme at the moment, using TuneUp Utilities 2009 on a Vista Home Premium 32bit Acer 5920G laptop.
I would deeply appreciate any help for this poor soul!
