Okay, I unchecked the enable transparency box, now it is gone, and the themes are greyed out. I resarted all services stopped and ran a scan now, and trouble shooter. Nothing was found. I really do not want to do a reinstall since I will lose my software. I didn't delete or uninstall anything. As I said, when I first went to personalization, there was a box that was checked that said "enable transparency" I unchecked it. Now Everything looks kind of like XP and that box is gone, so I cannot enable transparency.
Any and all help would be awesome. this forum has been much friendlier than other microsoft forums. Really rude!
