Super User Asked by user3063183 on October 28, 2020

After changing Windows 8 theme settings, I am unable to login into my account. When I try to login into my account, I get farted out back to the login screen. What I am supposed to do to fix this problem?

Follow the steps below:

  1. When you're at the login screen, click on the "power icon," located in the right lower corner of your screen. From the pop-out list, while holding SHIFT, click the "Restart" list-item.
  2. Three options will appear on a blue background. Choose Troubleshoot.
  3. More options will appear on the screen. From those options select Startup Settings.
  4. A restart button should appear, click on the Restart button.
  5. Your device should restart and a numbered list should appear on the screen. To select the Safe-Mode boot press the 5 or F5 on your keyboard.
  6. Your device should boot into the desired start-mode. Choose Search the Menu Bar. Type run into the search box, and start the program.
  7. A window with an input should appear on the screen. Type msconfig into the input and press enter.
  8. Choose the "Services" tab located at the top of the window frame, near the window border.
  9. A list of services should appear. Find service named "Themes," and uncheck it.
  10. Press the Apply and OK.
  11. The window should disappear. Now restart your device, boot into the Normal-Mode.
  12. Your device should reboot and enter the Normal-Mode. Login into your account.
  13. You should be logged into your account. Now repeat the steps from 6, to and including 10, but this time check the themes service. When you're done, follow the steps below.
  14. The window should disappear. Now click right mouse button on the desktop background and select Personalize.
  15. A window with themes should appear on the screen. Choose one of the Windows default themes from the list, and apply the settings. This was the last step.
