I can't get the bootup screen back to the default Windows XP booting screen!!!

It just stays at this stupid Star Wars Ep. 3 bootup screen. I've tried changing the theme back to XP, but it just stay at the same bootup screen. Please Help!!!

Also, every time I start it up it gives me two options: Reboot XP, and XP. It never gave me these before. No matter which one I pick it always does the same thing. Please Help!!!

Yeah I've gone into safe mode. But how would that help my problem? It has nothing to do with a virus or malware.

Hello LesSlashPaul!

You mentioned "a stupid Star Wars Ep. 3 bootup screen". Well you actually had to install that, right?!

What ever program you used to install that bootup screen, uninstall it with ALL its files. If you already uninstalled it, reinstall it and uninstall it again with all files.

That should bring your startup back to norm.

Also you could read this Microsoft article for more Startup info.:

Good Luck and please post back with your results so that we all can benefit.
