Windows 7: Stupid Aero can't change my taskbar colours!!!

Stupid Aero can't change my taskbar colours!!!

I just got a Viao with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit installed on it. All was going well. I have Aero working nicely and changed all my tak bars to a very stylish pink!!! But then suddenly everything changed my screen become distorted and stretched and I eventually resored it by changing the resoluation. I checked the colour which is set to 32 bit true colour and all seemed normal except when i went to change my taskbar back to pink I couldn't do it!!!!!
I still have the aero themes saved on my computer but I just chan't seem to change the colours... it comes up with a old fashioned windows colour and appearence box instead of the previous colour pallete it gave me.
I checked my experience rating and its at 1.0.... I tried ajusting the visual effect so that they prioritise appearence over performance but this had no effect.
My graphics info is:

Try a System Restore to before it crashed but after your customization..
System Restore

Check mark "Show other restore points in bottom left corner". Gives you a larger selection of dates and times.


That won't keep it from possibly crashing again .

Thanks.

You know how to get it back. Hopefully it was just a glitch that won't reoccur.
