just replace the file with the old one.

but don't do that yet. uxtheme.dll doesn't affect performance. the file is exactly the same except that it's unlocked and allows you to use unsigned styles. that does not affect the computer's performance. i suggest you identify the problem first instead of worrying about uxtheme files.

Wow...that this thread is still active and alive after so many months is simply amazing.

Maybe it would have been best had I never come across it in the first place. Here's why:

While looking up howto get around using StyleXP to use 3rd-party themes, I came across this whole buncha' info. on the 'uxtheme.dll' file and how to replace it.

I ended up using the UXTheme Multi-Patcher (Neowin Edition) 4.0...it worked, seemingly, flawlessly. However, when I reset the computer, it takes forever to load up, and when something does show up, it's just my windows desktop background. Nothing else shows up. Not the start bar, nor the desktop icons, nor anything else.

CTRL+ALT+DELETE still can bring up Task Manager, which I can use to "bring back" explorer.exe by running something else, like Control Panel. Tsak Manager Processes says that explorer.exe is running everytime I start the computer, but nothing shows up.

I think it's because the Patcher replaced my default ver. of uxtheme.dll file (5.1.2100.2562) with another version that doesn't match. I also have no Windows CD to restore my default uxtheme.dll file.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I think I read in a previous post that installing StyleXP fixes your uxtheme.dll file somehow. I'd just like everything to be restored the way it was.

i should really remove the link or something. v4.0 is old and may not work on newer systems. please remember to use the correct version when replacing the file.

are you able to get into the drive at all, either through another computer, linux, or the recovery console? if you have a backup, just rename or delete uxtheme.dll, then rename the backup to uxtheme.dll.

I'm a bit new to this site, but I here you're the guys to talk to about uxtheme.dll.

From what I've gleaned after skimming this thread is that a recent XP update installed a new uxtheme.dll, overwriting the patched version I was using. This has lead to my custom theme resetting to Luna every time I restart. And I understand that the UXtheme Autopatcher v4.0 is out of date.

So I guess my question is obvious; is there an updated patcher that will patch the file up to it's current working version, or at least a hacked uxtheme.dll file that is up to date? Any help would be great, thanks!

Well, looks like I found what I was looking for, but it didn't solve anything. Themes keep resetting on every reboot. The selected theme in the theme window is my custom one, but the desktop still looks like Luna. I can reselect my custom theme and apply it, and all will look right. Then I reboot and it's back to looking like Luna.

Dammit, my machine has just turned into a big god-damn nuisance box.
