    Check in System32 whether your original themeui.dll, uxinit.dll and uxtheme.dll are in order.

    Press and hold the Windows Key on your Keyboard and press R. Then in the Run box type C:\Windows\system32

    Then press enter. A explorer window will then open up then just browse for the files and make sure they arn't renamed as anything that modifies them will usually create a backup of the original and call it themeui.old or .bak. Or something simular.

    Theres prob a faster way to do it but thats how I'd do it.

    IF you want to keep trying just be sure if your version of Win10 is either 32-bit or 64-bit that you get the same for WinXP. 'Back then' only WinXP Pro was available also as 64-bit but it was not as prominent as Win7, not many programs were made for it. I may still have a copy somewhere but at the time never had the hardware for it.
