Yeah, good ole safe mode, I was just about to suggest that! then you can uninstall that damn program. I did, I'll stick with my plain ole silver scheme and be done with it too.
HOWEVER, before you uninstall style XP, make sure you go into it and set it back to "default" this should put back your proper screens....
hope that works for you man !
