I dont have an XP look..

I just reformatted my computer and when i want to log on or log off, it doesnt have the windows XP look to it with the three different colored buttons where it says stand by, restart, and turn off computer... it has the old 2000 way of signing off with the small window and drop boxes. I was wondering if anyone knows how to change it to look like XP.

This might be an old version of XP... does that make any difference?

Right click on your desktop screen. Click on properties>Apperance> then change from there.

do you know what i am talking about?

Im not talking about my desktop appearance.. i am talking about the blue windows xp screen that comes up when you boot up... i get a small window like on windows 2000 instead...

ok thanks VAPaintballer...

The only other problem that i have right now is that when viewing webpages in internet explorer, it is really choppy when i scroll.... and i have a 2.6 ghz computer so i dont think it has anything to do with it being slow, especially since it worked fine before reformatting with IE.

any suggestions?

i thought about installing firefox but id rather use IE if possible... i dont see why i woudnt be able to use it now when i could have three days ago...

VApaint... i have restarted about ten times!

also, its not a big deal right now... but i still dont have the xp sign off and log on... it says i got client services for netware that wont allow me to use that and that i should uninstall yet i dont see it in my add/remove programs thing in the control panel..
