App Crash & Aero Theme gone

Hello Expert Guys

Please help me on this.

I was trying to install DVD player software but some how it started giving the messages of Application Crash and changes the theme (because of compatibility problem). After that i restarted my PC and the message came PC was not able to restart properly so automatically it went under Repair and i just pressed OK.

After all these process i got my logon sreen back but when i entered into it, Theme was already changed to basic. I then tried to restore aero themes but no success.

I tried windows help on Aero, which give the below message.

"find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects"

I clicked on it and it went through whole process of checking and diagonosis but finally the message came, problem could not be solved with the below reasons:

Aero theme is not supported - Not Fixed.
Desktop Window Manager is disabled -- Detected.

I then searched over google for possible solution and found registry hack to enable Desktop Window Manager but that too did not solve my problem. Please help me on this as i want my aero theme back. Also, i did not create restore points so i don't have opiton of restore to previous date.

I found this site very informative and solution-oriented, so please help me to get my aero theme back with all its visual effects.

Awaiting for your feedback.
