Hello Mahesh and welcome to the forums

If you did it through modifying resources, then a SFC should do the trick:

SFC Scan

  1. Open the start menu
  2. In the search box, type cmd
  3. Right click on cmd and select Run as administrator
  4. In command prompt, type:

    sfc /scannow

  5. Let it run and let me know if it finds any Integrity Violations

hi,

Thanks guys for the reply after a long wait.
Let me try to explain it,i had actually changed the settings in windows itself without using any third party software.
Okay this is how it goes
step 1.after i press the power on button a black screen with windows at the bottom of the screen comes up.
step 2.Then the screen turns black and the cursor changes from pointed to a blue circle meaning it is trying to load windows.
step 3.then i get a screen which asks me to enter the password.(i don't want to change that screen)
step 4.after i enter the password and press the enter button the screen again turns completely white(not all the time i get to see the screen only sometimes)this is what i want to change and i changed it long ago without using 3rd party software.I do not remember how but i changed it to white color.I do not know how i changed I used the existing windows settings or through Control panel or something else.
I don't remember which windows settings i changed and i did not use any 3rd party software.
step 5.then windows loads and i get to see the icons on the desktop and all the other programs loads like the windows desktop.

The thing i mentioned in step 4 is what i want to change.i did not use any 3rd party software.i changed some settings which told me that i could change the color.I changed it to white color. i am sure you guys know how to do it.i hope you are able to understand what i want.I guess it is the background color which i want to change when windows loads not the solid colors in appearance of the control panel

I hope i am not confusing you.

Using windows home basic service pack 1

I did a sfc/scannow and it did not find any integrity violations.


i hope you guys can help me it is kind of frustrating.

help would be appreciated.

Hi Mahesh,

When you mention that you enter a password, do you mean to log on? Or have you encrypted your hard drive?

Here's an example of logging on:



Encrypted drive:

After i enter the password the pointer turns busy and then when it is trying to load the desktop the color of the screen turns white.I have actually changed the color to white.I think the default color was black,i don't remember exactly and also i don't know how i changed the color to white.

That is where i need help.

Hi Mahesh,

It's my pleasure Thanks for the rep!

Okay, I think I've found something. Can you hold the Windows Key and press R to show the Run dialogue box. In this, copy and paste the following command and press OK:

cmd /c REG QUERY "HKU\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors" /v Background > %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\RegQuery.txt && notepad.exe %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\RegQuery.txt

This will open a Notepad window with some lines of text, can you copy and paste all of the contents into your next post please

Hi Mahesh,

Okay, I don't know why that script didn't work for you but it's great that you are familiar with regedit.

Open up regedit and navigate to here:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors

Is there a key called "Background"? If so, double click it and change it's value to:

0 0 0

Then reboot

hi tom,

sorry about not replying early.

I went to regedit and checked the background the key shows as 000.
Do you know how to change in the settings without going to regedit because that's how ic remember having changed it.

thanks for the help again.
