no i havent try the 2nd method, but i managed to fix it solution was so simple why didnt i think of it earlier lol.
all i did was went to another laptop which had fresh window OS installed, went to the .bmp registry and export the entire thing, copy it to this laptop and import it and worked lol
thanks again for your time Brick! this forum is awesome and saved me a lot of time in window 7 settings/tweaks.
