I hope this is the correct location to post this>
Recently, I installed the November, MS Security updates & rebooted our win 2k3 enterprise server. Much to my chagrin, upon restart I noticed all my dialouge boxes font sizes were now twice as large (preventing me from accessing much of my controls from within windows). I checked my display settings & nothing had changed. However, my desktop was now a totally different color and some of the text in the drop down boxes dissappeared. All attempts to reset my original theme failed. I uninstalled the update but still can't recapture my original settings.
I have never experienced this before. What options are available to remedy this problem?
I checked to make sure card driver was current. Also tried (c) &(d). Decided to uninstall update and go to backup drive without this update.
Maybe later I'll try with windows video driver But for now system is running again.

Had to do a reinstall. What a pain. Had a buddy lose his file server too. I had a raid controller on an Exchange 2k3SP1 server not know any partitions too. I however, removed the drives, rebooted, reseated the drives and then it booted ok. I did not want to test my disaster recovery on my exchange server that morning. Luckily, that worked.
