Default Windows classic gets picked whenever i try to change the theme.

I've recently downgraded to XP for the sake of performance and this happens whenever i try to change the theme.


I used AVG TuneUP to change the theme but it was a trial version and when i uninstalled it the theme problem came back.

Yes, it is.


Also an unrelated question: What would be better? Would my laptop run better with XP or Win7? Cause i really can't see the difference.

Specs 2GB RAM, dual core processor 1.87GHZ each, 385 mb video card memory.

If it helps my laptop is a Dell Vostro A860.



Thanks kag, if anyone would've tried to help i knew you'd be the one to post first.

Check your event viewer see if any error or warning messages are there.
Start -> Run -> eventvwr

I would prefer Windows 7 but it does use a little bit more RAM.
I haven't tried windows 8 but it is said to use lower RAM and resources.

You can try upgrading to windows 8, since there's a upgrade promotion right now for USD$39.99
Upgrade to Windows 8 - Microsoft Windows
You can run the upgrade assistant to see if your system is compatible and also to see if there's any incompatible software.
I'm not sure how the upgrade assistant will run on XP since i no longer have one to test it.
