    Hello! My name is Apoorva. I am using Windows Vista Ultimate and I had installed Style XP v3.19. After the installation, stylexp popup a window saying that it does not support Vista. So, I had to uninstall style xp. Now, after the uninstallation, all the icons on my desktop as well as in folders are screwed up and it says: "Window Explorer has stopped working...". And later, when I double click on C:\, it is not opening. I also tried the Vista Repair options through the Vista DVD and also through sfc /scannow but they did not resolve the issue.

    It's wired! I had also created a System Restore point 3 days before installing Style XP v3.19 and now it says that there are no System Restore point created. It also gives an error message and I tried to take a screenshot of it - went to MSPaint - Paste the image. Now, when I try to save the image, the screen gets frozen.

    Also, all the drive icons in My Computer are corrupted. The icons on the desktop are invisible & one can only see the icon names. Also, I am unable to enter any of the drives as the screen gets frozen.

    Seems, like I need to perform a PC Restore. Thank god I took a backup right at the start, after installing Windows Vista. At the moment, I am typing this message from Windows XP SP2. This is the time, when the 2nd OS if installed, comes in handy. Otherwise, I had to visit a Cyber cafe to send you the message.

    Atleast Vista has something good in it than expected >>> PC Restore.

    Anyway'z, do let me know if you have any workaround on the issue that I am facing and if you can save me from this hassle of PC Restore. B'coz, so far if I understand, there could be some corruption in files taken place. I contacted StyleXP in regards to this issue, but they could not help me out...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated....

    Apoorva.

    If StyleXP themselves cannot help you, I'd recommend you do a restore, and if that doesn't work, it's time to reinstall from scratch.

    Hopefully, next time you see those warning boxes that pop up about Vista incompatibilities, you'll heed those warnings, right? :thumbleft
