"If this doesn't help then Restore to before you did the Browser upgrade - what was this exactly?"
The browser selection "upgrade" is something that Microsoft had to give to the European Comission to prove that they does not stiffle free competition, when installed it removes the shortcuts to IE and "gives" you the "opportunity" to choose another browser from several different candidates ....
AFter this one was accidentally installed in the PC, my problems started.
To patch the registry is no problem, provided that you know what you are doing, well, otherwise Theme - Specify Default Theme to Load for New Users
- The first thing I tried to do. Won't work. Classic theme still loaded. configure same theme for all users
- Haven't tried this yet, will try. Did figure that it won't help, because it is the same thing as the previous step. how to change the desktop theme for all users
- Did that, didn't work. Nothing but an override to the local policy and my problem seems that there's somewhere a registry key missing or one that can't be identified by searching for themes. Optimize Desktop Productivity with User Profiles
- Here's something that might fix my problems, I'll have to try it.
System restore isn't an option in this case.
