    Default internet options box

    This is no big deal but I have two computers with windows xp. Last night I booted down one of them and when I turned it back on today the internet options box looks like the one in windows 98 instead of xp.

    How in the world did this happen and how do I fix it?

    Default

    Is it just the Internet Options window?

    Try this.... Right click on My Computer, Properties, then the Advanced tab. Under Performance, click on Settings, then Visual Effects. Ensure that the Let Windows choose what's best for my computer option is selected and that all options in the lower window are selected. Click on Apply, OK and restart the computer.

    If that doesn't work, use System Restore to revert to a previous day, making sure to save any work/data created since then to an external drive.
