Here is the Aero theme, if this doesn't help, you probably will need to do a repair install.

Place this file in C:/Windows/Resources/Themes.

Infinite: That didn't work..... on to the repair.

I don't know whether to ask this on the repair install thread or not; I have an OEM system builder pack will that work for the repair install? The disk says it has the anytime upgrade included....

It should be OK if it is the same edition of Windows you are repairing. Your key will only activate one specific edition.

I experienced a similar situation, i.e. had problems with Areo effects after I'd updated my Intel graphics card driver. In my case a simple return to the previous one did it all right without having to resort to a reinstall.

Anyway, keep up the good work, fellas.
