What did you modify? Can you do a system restore by using one of the F keys after Bios to before you did the change?

I modified the font /size letter of right click -desktop menu.
It's working, but after i restart the computer, as i said above, i cannot login back.
And by the way : whenever i try something ( programs, testing, etc ) i always activate the option Try and Decide, from Acronis.
If there is a problem, i restart the PC, and i have 2 options during restart :
1 -Continue in the mode ( something like that )with the options to continue testing..

2- Discard changes
So i press Discard changes, and everything it's like before i tested ....whatever.
Now i'm okay, but i wanna change those fonts / letters from right click -desktop menu.
I wish i could use this nice program, but it seems to a problem, somewhere.
Thanks.

Did you have login problems before installing WSB?

Did you try to edit the theme you are using?
If so you need to use a different theme then logoff & logon then you can edit the theme that you want to change (but not using at the time of editing)

No, i didn't have login problems before installing WSB.
Yes, i tried to edit the theme i'm using.
I don't understand exactley what do you mean. A different theme ??
But i wanna edit the theme i'm using, because there is something i want to modify.
Let me understand : so, for example, i wanna edit Snow Leopard theme, right ?
Do i have to use another theme when i edit Snow Leopard theme ?

Yes change to another theme & logoff & logon
then you can edit Snow Leopard theme.
To change the font, size, color is at Lists, Menus & Tabs > Menu > PopUpItem

DO THIS 1ST
OK for the login problem to a system restore to before you installed WSB & see if that fixes it then reinstall WSB

I don't know what am i doing wrong.
Now i did as you said. I changed the theme, log off - logon.
After that, i modified the theme Leopard, right ? I save it as "Leopard test"
Log off - logon again. No more problems with the logon, but how do i apply the them i changed ?? If i choice Leopard, from right click- desktop / personalization, i can't see Leopard test theme.

Do you make a folder for "Leopard test" & put it in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes ?

No, i dont make a folder for "Leopard test" in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
Should i ?? I really don't understand what am i doing wrong. If i use another theme, and i modify Leopard theme, when is done, i'm asked to use now the modified theme, i press OK. Everything is fine, the right click - desktop menu is modified, letters -size -fonts -color or whatever, but after log off, when i logon back, i have the Leopard theme again, not the theme i modified ( Leopard test )
Can you do me a favour, please ? Just modify this Leopard theme for me, change to PopUp item to 9- color black instead grey, and send it to me, please.
I wonder if it's gonna work.
Thanks.
