Well it tells us that you are lost

This is in no way linux related but try going into "Control Panel -> Add Remove Programs -> Windows Components" Find "Desktop Themes" (under accesories I think) uncheck the box next to it then ok the next few windows. Insert your Win98 disk as needed. Then reboot. Now repeat the above procedure but check the box instead. Hopeully when you reboot the Themes/Theme Manager will have been reinstalled.

You mean you are using windows 98 Operating system?
If you are then just right click the desktop and choose properties from there go though the menus and find what you want to change.

A little advice. After windows crashes, gives you the blue screen of death and you get " this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down " 5 times a day Think of switching to Linux, youve already found the place to get help
