    Hello, I am running Fusion v1.1.1 with an XP Pro VM, and noticed the most strange thing today that is really piddly, but getting under my skin nonetheless.
    Normally, I like to run Windows Classic Style instead of the XP Style (I just can't stand the bubbly garbage, and it runs snappier in Classic), but if I select 'Classic' and shut the VM down, it will be using the 'XP' theme the next time I start it up. Now, I can choose Classic then 'Restart' the VM and that change sticks, BUT if I actually shut the VM down and then run it, my theme is changed.
    Has anyone seen this before, and know of a way to make the change persistent across 'sessions'? Thanks in advance for any insight.

    I've experienced the same problem. It must be a bug in VMWare.

    I disabled the themes service in Windows XP as a workaround.
