my theme modifeis after reboot

This is probably a Windows configuration issue common in Windows XP, particularly if you don't have much RAM.

Go to: Start > Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings

The "System Properties" window will open. Select the "Advanced" tab at the top and click on "Settings" in the "Performance" section. This will open the "System Properties" window. Select the "Visual Effects" tab at the top, then check the radio button next to "Adjust for best appearance". Your PC is probably set to "Let Windows choose . . ." or "Adjust for best performance"

Please note that by selecting "Adjust for best appearance" option may slow your PC down a little if you don't have much RAM. If this is the case, it may also be a good idea to increase the amount of virtual memory allocated. This can be done from the "Advanced" tab in the "System Properties" window.

I've included a couple of screen grabs to help you.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

need to reslove transparency issues

You can adjust your graphics properties to not show translucent windows. Once in Performance Options, you can customize this option or choose adjust for best performance to remove all the bells and whistles for more speed. Hope this answers your question. All the best!

Performance Options dialog box
The most useful Windows XP performance-tuning options are on the Visual Effects and Advanced tabs of the Performance Options dialog box. You’ll find this box via the System Properties control panel by clicking the Settings button under Performance (Start | Control Panel | System | Performance | Settings). Figure A shows both the Visual Effects and Advanced tabs with the performance options you can easily modify.
