Fix Personalization Control Panel Error

Error: When accessing personalization in windows vista, it says, "Personalization control panel error," 

When i go to personalization in windows vista, it says, "Personalization control panel error,"  and below that, it says, "there was a problem loading a pre-set color."

Why do you think this happens? How can i fix it?

The exact solution is possible only after knowing How are you trying to access Personalization? Does this happen when you try to access Personalization from desktop or from Control panel. If this happens when you are accessing from Desktop, you have to try from the Control Panel. And if it is otherwise, try the other other option if you are still getting the problem.

And if you make any recent changes to the computer prior to this issue, the simple fix would be to use system restore to restore your computer to a much earlier date and try if that works.

If you are still stuck some where, You can try the following steps and check.

Step 1: You can try running the Windows Aero Fixit and check if it helps:

Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero

Step 2: If the issue still persists, check the status of Themes service.

  • A. Click start, type services.msc in the search box and press enter.
  • B. Click continue at the UAC prompt
  • C. Locate "Themes" in the list and double click on it.
  • D. In the General tab the Startup type should "Automatic", and Service status should be "Started" if not click on the "Start" button to start the service.
  • E. Click Apply then OK.

Step 3: If the above steps don’t work, then you can try in a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

Create a user account

If the issue doesn't occur then refer the following link and follow the steps to repair the corrupt user profile:

If you are still not getting any success, you can try to run a SFC scan to check for any corrupted files and try installing SP2 and IE 8. You can refer the following KB article to run the SFC scan: How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7
