When you open the User Accounts applet in Control Panel, the applet background may be displayed in White color (as opposed the Blue background) even with Windows XP Theme is enabled and Themes service running.



This happens due to missing registry values. Fig 1 is the normal screen, and Fig 2 illustrates the problem. Type these commands from Start, Run dialog:

regsvr32 themeui.dll

regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll (Don't run this command if using Internet Explorer 7)

Restart Windows.
