    There was a problem loading a pre-set color.


    I get this when trying to change the taskbar/window color in the personalize thing.

    turning on the Themes service does not work.

    using msconfig does not work.

    please help.

    Can't you just go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization -> Color?

    You could try this.
    Step 1:

    Follow these steps and check if it helps.

    a. Press Windows Key +R, type Control Panel.
    b. Type troubleshooting in the search bar, click on troubleshooting.
    c. Click on System Maintenance.
    d. Follow the steps from the wizard to run the troubleshooter.



    Step 2:

    After running the troubleshooter, check in Windows updates if driver updates are available for the Display card. If so, install the same and check if it helps.
    a. At the Start screen, type Windows Update.

    b. Click or tap Settings on the right side of the screen, and then select Install optional updates from the left results.

    c. When the Windows Update control panel opens, click on “Check for Updates” on the top left corner to receive a fresh list of updates.

    You could put everything on a USB drive, it might make it easier to transport all your files. Besides that, there's nothing else I can suggest. I hope someone else can resolve your problem.
