Two lefts and a diagonal sidestep from where you are.

Favourite OS
Windows 7 M3 (6801)
I installed Windows XP Pro on my laptop. For some reason, the themes service was non-existant... i checked for it in Services.MSC. It wasn't listed. So I found a reg fix for the themes service on Google. But when I try to start the service, i get this error:

Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement this service.

Any ideas on how to repair this?

Well that is what you get for installing MicroXP without an XP disk handy ;). To my understanding svchost.exe runs all the services so you may just want that?

If svchost was missing he would be having all sorts of other problems... probably wouldn't even be able to post here.

It IS there but it is in MicroXP and is cut down so a copy of the original would have the services removed in it.

The services aren't actually contained within svchost. svchost is hosting services that are contained in library files.

He could try to get all the files for the themes service back in there... but why not just install a real copy of XP?

What would the point of installing MicroXP be if your going to just install XP?
