Preferred Solution: Win'XP Colour Scheme

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I mean the colour scheme of the taskbars and windows that you change in the appearence settings. (Windows classic, Teal, Brick, maple etc.)
I don't really like any of the schemes, but I don't want to bother with Style XP, or Windows Blinds or any of those programs again.

Every time I use the command Ctrl+C to copy. My Windows aero colour scheme returns to default colours. The only way to change it back is to hit Ctrl+C 10 more times!!! This seems to be an odd issue but its really annoying as I copy and paste allot XD

Can somebody help me?? I'm new to the forum.


Answer:Aero scheme colour change - Help!!!

Sounds liek something is running that is interpreting Ctrl+C as a command to restore default colors. Weird but that's what it sounds like.

How does it behave if you boot to Safe Mode with Networking? If better then something is starting at boot that is causing the problem.

Advanced startup options - XP
Advanced startup options - Vista
Advanced startup options - Windows 7

Use msconfig to determine what is causing the problem

These are good tutorials on using msconfig in XP, Vista or Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows XP
How to use msconfig in Windows Vista
How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs better.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system. Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.

Does anyone know how to change the default colour scheme for a new publication in Publisher XP? It has to be specific for a user.

I have a user whos default colour scheme on a new publication is 'Red' yet other users on the same computer have the default scheme of 'Bluebird'.

I have searched for the default template (within the "application data\microsoft\templates" and "templates" folders of the username) but could not find one. There wasn't one for the username that works fine.

I have searched the Microsoft Knowledgebase but had no success.

Computer spec (can't see how this would effect the issue)

I thought i'd start compiling a list of software that forces Windows 7 (and indeed Vista) to automatically revert to the Standard/Basic colour scheme, thus disabling the Aero effects within the Windows GUI.

This is not a fault with Windows, the software must be calling for resources/environment variables that are either not available or different in Vista/Seven.

PowerDVD Blu ray edition - thanks to swarfega for this

Gidday all. This is my first visit to this forum, so please bear with me.
My problem is like this:
Firstly, this is what I did.
* I setup my desktop background picture and colour scheme by clicking on the desktop and selecting properties;
* I got into the area that allows one to choose the colours for the desktop, windows background etc (all those elementary things that were easy in the anceint versions of windows);
* I chose a custom colour version of "cyan" for my background and use black for the letters. I prefer this combination as it's easier on the eyes than a white background with black letters.
Secondly, I saved everything then selected apply.
So far so good. Works well for awhile. Then in the middle of working on something (even Word) I get the "PLEASE WAIT" window and everything defaults back to the original windows colour scheme. This problem occurs regardless of what application I use.
Has anyone got any suggestions, please? I contacted the tech help guys that set up my machine originally but they couldn't help.

Answer:Changing appearance of display colour scheme

Hello and welcome to TSF.

A few suggestions to try out while others ponder the possible causes.

1. After making the changes go and right click on the desktop and under arrange icons , choose lock the desktop.

2. Control panel / display / settings/ troubleshooting
lower the hardware accelleration.

3. Right click my computer choose properties (or control panel => system) => advanced => performance => settings
Click adjust for best appearance.

Restart after you have made these changes so that they get hard recorded to the registry hive before anything else tries to use the old settings.

So i have had this for only about an hour, but it is really bugging me. I have also read through other posts on this site and they haven't helped. I used a program which changed my colour scheme to basic. This wasn't the first time a program had done that, but when i closed the program it did not change back. I have tried turning off the computer and that sort of thing, but to no success. I also have right clicked desktop, gone to personalize and tried to change it from windows basic, but it did not work. The basic scheme has changed my windows, so when i hover over an icon in the taskbar, the box thing doesn't appear, has changed my taskbar colour to non-transparent and my log on screen (or the screen when you hit ctrl alt delete) to a different colour. Sorry i don't know much about computers, but i would love to get this fixed. thanks

I am running windows 7 pro 64 bit on 4.4GHz 6core Intel with 16GB RAM, 400Mbps SSD drive, water cooling and 2 quad output Firepro ATI graphics cards.

I want to run in windows 7 basic colour mode.

Why? Because aero really sucks in my opinon.

1. Being able to see through the top bar to what's behind is not important
2. windows key tab is way slower to find what you want than alt+tab
3. screen capture software doesn't always like it
4. whilst deciding where to put an app it thinks i am shaking it and everything disappears
5. when i move stuff, it snaps to full height or left right when i don't want that (make it with the min/max/restore options please)

There is really nothing in it that I can see if of any real use, other than just bling.

However if you set to "adjust for best performance" that version is a bit too old looking.

Basic is perfect for me, however it does not persist on reboot.

Any ideas how I might do that?

When I open MediaMonkey the screen sort of flashes and Vista (I'm on Home Basic 32 bit) tells me that it has had to switch off the Aero Colour scheme because Media Monkey is not compatible with it. I close MediaMonkey and the screen flashes again and re-switches to Aero colour scheme. So far so good.

To avoid this, I went into Control Panel - Appearance - Change the colour scheme to leave the colour scheme at Vista Basic permanently. (Weirdly enough, the Aero Colour scheme isn't even an option, only Vista Basic and Standard so why is it defaulting to Aero?). I set it to Vista Basic, apply save etc, open MediaMonkey and we're back to the start, it says it has had to switch off Vista Aero. But I just did that...

No clue as what to do, so any ideas gratefully received. Could it be something to do with the registry?

At startup 2 days ago my desktop colour scheme was reset to classic with grey taskbar etc. When I tried to change it back to silver I found that the windows xp style in display properties - appearance - windows and buttons, was gone and only windows classic style was present.
Confused I though maybe I needed to do a windows update. I proceeded to do so and while I was at it updated to SP3. After doing this I could successfully change my colour scheme back to silver and change the size of my active title bar and menu font etc back to the way they were.
But now whenever I restart my PC the colour scheme has reverted back to the default blue xp theme and the size changes back to default as well.
I'm at a aloss because I have windows auto updates turned off and had installed no new software the night before this happened.

I should also add that I have already done a virus scan, Malwarebytes Anti-malware scan and a Spybot search and destroy scan but found nothing.

Answer:Solved: Desktop Colour scheme keeps reverting to default at startup

Ok. I fixed it somehow. Don't know how this worked but it did. I remember after updating windows 2 days ago I discovered that the themes service was disabled so I enabled it and set it to auto but when I rebooted, the theme still reset to default even though the service was still enabled.
Today I started wondering what other services were disabled so I checked and discovered even though my Themes service was running, when I click on the dependencies tab I got this error message
"win32 the service cannot be started, either because it is disabled because it has no enabled devices associated with it"
then I discovered if I tried to click the dependencies tab of all my services I got the same error message even though they were enabled and running fine.
Upon checking my other services I discoverd the Windows Management Instrumentation service had been mysteriously disabled along with the Security Accounts Manager.
So I started and set both these services to automatic, changed my colour scheme to silver and this time when I restarted my PC the colour scheme had been saved and was still there.
The only conclusion I can come to, because I am no expert, is that for some reason the appearence settings were not being saved until I enabled one of those two services.
Does this sound right.

Okay, confusing subject title? I will explain and hopefully someone can throw some light on this continuing, worsening, problem.

Firstly, I am visually impaired and am forced for a number of reasons to use Windows High Contrast Black as my colour scheme. On the whole, this is a troublefree solution to my visual loss, except when it comes to the Internet. Over the years, the use of what I assume are 'Flash' type buttons, are becoming more and more common, and some are seemingly incompatible with the above mentioned colour scheme. Please follow the brief instructions below, so you can see what I'm going on about. I will assume that anyone with the knowledge of how to solve this, will know how to change a Windows colour scheme.

1. Go to and note the existence of menu buttons near the top of the screen. They contain labelling such as 'Pizza', 'Wings', etc... Hopefully, if you are using a reasonably normal Windows scheme, these should be visible.
2. Now change your Windows Colour to 'High Contrast Black'. There are about 6 so called high contrast schemes in this section, and for all I know this little experiment may work with all of them, but for my purposes, choose only 'High Contrast Black'
3. Now return to the Pizza Hut address I gave you and either put the address in again, or simply reload the page.

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great


Answer:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

That would pee me off no end. How in God's name can it use colour to create black when there's a black cartridge in there? A cheapo mono laser seems to be your ideal tool. I know nothing about colour laser printers, but is there an option anywhere in the settings to print using only the black cartridge? Does the printer still work if you take out the colour cartridge while printing only black text documents?

Question: sound scheme in XP

Hi out there!  I'm new to this site and found it very helpful, but have a question that I couldn't find.I'm also new at computers and  learning as I go.  I recently had to have the replacement of Win2000 to XP system program, but in doing so I have no more sound.  There is no sound device detected. I was investigating on my own and wound up at the "Sound and Audio Device Properties" and made a change under the Sounds tab.  The Sound scheme was set on a blank space and I changed it to "Windows default" without saving the old setting.  Now under Sound scheme I have two choices instead of three. Here's my questions:  Is there away to reverse this?  If not, have I made a major error?  What does it all mean anyway?  And if you have any other input about the lost Sound device let me know that as well.  Thank you!

Answer:sound scheme in XP

You will likely need to find the correct driver for your sound card or integrated sound controller. I'd try at the manufacturers web site under support and drivers, then search for  Sound Drivers and chose the one for XP. If the computer is older the mfr may not have a XP driver for it and the easy fix may be to buy a new sound card if a desktop computer and install it vs try to find a generic driver that is XP compatible and supports your sound chipset. If it is a laptop, your options are far less since I am unaware of any sound upgrade or replacements for laptops.

I'll have access to an old computer running windows 98 next week. If I have a chance, I will copy one utopia wav file to a floppy (98SE doesn't recognize USB sticks without a driver), move the file to a USB stick, put the stick in my 7 Netbook and see if I can get it to play.

Found a download site here
I'll test it in a few minutes.

Question: Color Scheme

Each time I turn on my computer (HP Pavilion 500-205T(new from HP) A box comes up saying that the color scheme is being changed due to a program running: Qttask.exe Process Identifier 2708. I have no idea what this is and I can't find it listed in the "control panel" list of programs??
The new machine has Windows 7 at the OPS and was a close-out from HP, I guess they are getting rid of all the Windows 7 machines. They did make me a offer I couldn't refuse.

Question: Sound scheme

My Sony Multimedia computer will no longer play Windows soundscheme sounds (beeps, chimes, etc). All other sounds play ok. All settings appear to be correct what is the problem?

Answer:Sound scheme

Try restoring defaults to Windows defaults in 'sounds and audio devices' in control panel or.Try doing 'system restore' to go back to a date before before the problem
There could be a possibilty that the custom sound scheme you are trying to upload to your system is either corrupt or incomplete or it is not on the right path. try uninstalling it and downloading it again. Good Luck

My specs tells that I have Toshiba laptop. It's not 4 core gaming "canon", but it's quite powerful (enough to play all games on reasonable details). And as such, it heats a lot. I have constantly running app to check these temperatures, but even when using all graphic memory/cpu, temperatures doesn't go over 60 degrees of celsius, usually 50-60 (one core is 5 degrees colder, graphic card stays at 50-55).

But the problem is that I cannot find a right scheme to fit my needs. I created some, carefully choosing attributes, but how to make one that would

1)use all graphic/cpu/memory potential if needed
2)use fan only when temperature goes over certain threshold, like 70. I think that 100 is maximum, but I don't want to get close to it. 80 is very lot I suppose.

But this fan noise is simply too annoying. It's good that notebook is cool, but I would like to have more freedom over how to control it. When I'm at school and have a lot of applications running, it sometimes goes wild and it's really embarrassing to have so noisy fan in quiet classroom. In such cases, I would like to have an option to have both

and quiet notebook.

Yes, it would overheat a little bit, but nothing fatal.

I hope there is a way. Somehow.

Answer:I cannot find a right scheme to fit my needs

Use a cooling pad or elevate the rear about an inch to get air underneath at all times. Never have the intake or exhaust blocked by a bed, sofa or lap top.

Google how to clean out the dust in your laptop and follow the videos for doing so. Check the heatsink and repaste if necessary, or hire someone to do it for you. The thermal paste dissipates processor heat but can erode.

If this doesn't help, buy a cooling pad and ground your laptop there.

I would like to change the default colors of some programs in Windows XP.

For example: When you open MS Office XP (or any program) like Word, the main color of the window is too light and glaring. I don't mean the bar at the very top, nor the write screen, but the frame of the program, and where File, Edit, View, Tools, etc., etc., the slider bars on the right and bottom and everywhere else.

I would like to change it to the standard Gray like Windows 95,98. I know that I can change the "appearance" to Classic Windows, but that isn't what I want; that changes the whole systems colors. I want to keep the XP colors\themes and just change the "standard" glaring color to a softer gray it's easier on my eyes in a few programs.

I need a better method to auto archive some of my employees Outlook folders. We use Outlook 2002/XP and are limited by the 2 GB PST file bug (no updates or service pack has yet to fix this, so we're just gonna deal with it). Their PST file reaches 2 GB in just a couple of months, then the send/recieve problems starts.

Currently I go around to whoever is currently have the errors and manually make a new PST folder for each quarter of the year and move over folders & messages accordingly, thenm compact the main PST folder.

Using auto archive feature how do I make this much easier for me?

Answer:Better Outlook Archiving Scheme

I am not familiar with your "Bug" because I run OL2000, but AutoArchive will create a seperate PST file automatically. Once the file is created, you can import them into a new folder. But I am not clear if that adds to the original the main PST or remains linked to the Archive.pst.

I will say one of my favorite tricks is to, especially with files from consistant sources and attachments is... you can drag ( highlight range) the e-mail messages out of out look and into a regular Windows folder and back up your e-mails this way. The messages will still open in outlook and contain the attachments, and you can use the folder search options to find messages.

It is very simple and it amazes me Microsoft doesn't know this.
The naming scheme is so bad because the numbers keeps changing. There is no other identity attached to a phone. So you can't say 'get the new Lumia 820' because there is no new Lumia 820. There is a Lumia 830, but is a different number, and with a non logical increase. So you have to say, get the new Lumia 820, which is now named as the Lumia 830. Ridiculous. Bad. Super bad. Horrible.
Because of this a phone can never create a hype or/and a recognizable 'sub' brand like the name Galaxy is for Samsung and iPhone is for Apple. I call these sub brand names because they start living a life of their own. People will simply say, I want the new Galaxy or the new iPhone. So they wait until the number behind that sub brand name is increased by 1. Galaxy 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Easy. It works. It's simple for people who do not research phones. For people who don't know anything. They just think, the Galaxy or iPhone was quite good for me so I'll buy the next one. The naming scheme allows for an addiction to happen. People will mindlessly upgrade.
Now let's see how Lumia does it. Lumia phones have all kinds of numbers. To us experts they are logical. But my sister, my mother, my aunt, my sheep friends they have no clue what those numbers mean. People don't want logic. People want to be addicted to a brand they are comfortable with.

There are a few variables to this backup scheme so I need some suggestions.

I used to work where my server is located but have since moved to another job and continue to use their T1 that I pay part of. The only time I am ever able to go down there is during the weekend. The people who work there have offered to switch the tapes for me but I don't want to be a huge inconvenience.

Anyways I have a small DDS1 tape drive which will be able to hold my IIS, SQL, and Exchange until I need more storage. I am using BackupExec 9.1 to back everything up and it would be best to have a weeks worth of individual backups.

The way I would do it if I was there everyday is to do a full backup of each daily to tape and switch the tapes ever day. I would then probably just overwrite the Friday tape with Saturday and Sunday. Or I could backup Saturday and Sunday a RAID 1 hard drive.

So basically I think they could change the tape everyday but 1 time a week might be better for them, any suggestions?

Answer:Best way for me to setup my backup scheme?

If your running R1 I really don't see any point in using the tape daily. I would run a daily to disk and a weekly to tape.

Windows XP SP2

Partition 1 - 5gb - Windows XP SP2, updates, drivers, etc.

Partition 2 - ~remainder of a 320gb hard drive - everything else. Apps, games, media, etc.

1) is 5gb enough space for the OS itself and any drivers? Ever forsee in the future needing more than 5gb for just the OS and drivers?

2) is it a bad idea to keep games on a separate partition as the OS for performance reasons? i.e. any performance hit for keeping games on a separate partition?

My goal in this, since I reformat often, is to make the whole process as painless as possible. Rather than installing the OS, drivers and every freaking program I use, I'd rather just install the OS and drivers and be done in a fraction of the time.

Answer:Rate my partition scheme

if it's the same drive there should be no difference which partition the programs are on. 5 gigs should be fine, just as long as you make sure to keep it clean. I had a similar partition scheme and somehow my xp partition became 9 gigs and i have no idea how. Also might need to turn off things like system restore, and possibly even move the page file...5 gigs should be enough as long as you keep it clean. As far as programs and data on a separate partition, I tend to prefer to just keep data on it's on partition, reason being that if you ever decide to reinstall windows some of your programs might no longer work, and then you have no easy way of getting formatting your programs partition. Data (music, movies, pictures, office files, etc...) will always be there and won't depend on registry or anything like that, so it's generally a good idfea to keep it all on a separate partition than programs. For recovery purposes it won't make a difference, but it's cleaner

If I go to a power scheme that is different when on AC versus batteries, it doesn't seem to adjust when the power source changes. I am on Windows XP with a x61s. If for example I am on power source optimized, it correctly sets it to the settings depending on the power source. Whenever I change that, I get the beep but I do not get any change in the brightness or other settings... Any ideas?
