    I ran a program called CleanUp! and when I rebooted the computer looks like
    Windows 98 rather than XP. I can't figure out how to change it back. Can
    anyone help me?

    Your XPee is mis-configured, the real desktop should look like mine:

    Okay, I tried a system restore and it didn't work. There was no way to
    change it from the control panel because the only style to chose from was
    windows classic.

    I found that I am not the only one who ran into this problem using CleanUp!
    I tried the instructions in the above link and it wouldn't work so I then
    tried the instructions at
    and everything is back to normal even after rebooting.

    Thanks anyway and maybe this will help someone else.
