Applying Visual Styles Error

Hi I'm running Vista 32 bit Home Edition on my desktop and recently the start menu and taskbar are set automatically to windows 98 view. Usually i just restart the computer and settings go back to regular windows vista theme. But when the problem occurs i go into the Theme Settings and try to change it to windows vista theme and i get this error message:

Applying Visual Styles Error
"The visual styles could not be applied. Not enough storage is available to process this command."

What can I do to fix this?

Hi NatJm429 and welcome. Hit the Windows key plus r and type:


and click ok. Scroll through your services and make sure that Themes is started and the startup type is set to Automatic.
