what i have tried;

- changing the theme to standard and to others.*
- rebooting ^^
- downloading a costum theme (still thesame..)

*The window where you can choose your theme gives a transparant icon, so transparency should be on, no?, still doesnt work..

And i should get something like this :

Did some more research and i found out that the aero transparency is automaticly turned off when your pc-score is lower then 3, mine is 2.9, because of my hdd..
does this means my hdd is bad?

Check your display settings, make sure your desktop is 32-bit colors. It may have reverted to 16-bit...
