    I know this has been discussed before, but every once in a while when I open
    IE8 in WinXP Pro SP3, the whole top is black and can't be read. I know of
    the scheme to run/services.msc/themes off/ themes on, and that takes care of
    the problem. However, it doesn't stick. Is there a method to make it stick
    and not come back?

    Thanks

    Henry

    As far as I know, Microsoft never fixed it. Are you using the Classic
    theme? That's the scenario I'm aware of where this bug comes up....
    using the Classic theme in XP, with IE8.

    The options in this post seem to be the most complete, other than just
    switching browsers:
