Recently, I installed the uxtheme.dll onto my computer using this guide > http://www.neowin.ne...howtopic=339820

Now, whenever I try to change my visual styles or theme, a popup appears and it says this:
"The visual styles could not be applied. Access is denied."

The only one that is working is the Windows Classic; the XP version won`t even work. Someone please help me? ='(

make sure the themes service is enabled and that you used the correct version of uxtheme.dll.
