    How to get XP theme on TinyXP?

    Hi.
    I just installed TinyXP and I love it because it's really quick. However, I was just wondering if there was a way to get the default XP style theme back on ? The theme support seems to be completely gone from the version I downloaded, and the theme right now is the classic windows style. Maybe there is a way to get the XP theme back on without doing a complete reinstall? Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Tiny and it's varients are there to REMOVE things. Since most people consider themes to be not needed, or at least, they take a considerable amount of space, and do nothing for someone who wants to run a fast OS, and is willing to give up many options in XP, it is not important.

    Also, once it is gone, there is no way to get it back with out resintalling.

    Do a search on my Screen name and Tiny XP. I have a link to a program that will strip down your OS, but you choose what it removes and leaves. Also, look into "Nlite". Just create your own version of XP, and leave in the Themes.

    Depending on revisions, some doesn't support Bootvis as Task Scheduler, a needed component by Bootvis is missing...

    actually... (this question just bothered me) - just go to start, run, services.msc, right click on "Themes", choose Automatic start and then reboot and themes are back (but none are included, so grab the lovely Royale theme from http://www.softpedia.com/get/Desktop...or-WinXP.shtml
