The problem is that your antivirus does not good the cleaning.

Themed32 virus infects system DLL  “%SysDir%\uxtheme.dll“.

It changes the import table of the uxtheme.dll for auto loading the Themed32.DLL.

The Themed32 virus uses this method for auto starting with Windows system.

The simple way for resolving the problem: use boot CD.

The good choice is “RegRun Warrior“.

You will find the  “%SysDir%\uxtheme.dll~RF5bac.TMP” (or with similar name)  backed up by virus .

Rename “uxtheme.dll~RF5bac.TMP” to the “uxtheme.dll”.

The Warrior boot CD includes the best file manager (Far Manager) that automatically displays hidden files.

Restart your computer and continue your good day!

    Thank you you genius!!! Absolutely fantastic and sorted out my problem quick smart (after 2 days fiddling around and getting hold of another copy of Vista to try and resolve things… – which it didn't… Resorted to booting up to the vista reinstall, going to repair and via the command prompt renaming the files as shown above… Thanks!)
