Can't remove the custom alienware border that came with my computer.

I can't seem to remove the custom alienware border from applications on my computer. I have tried changing themes and everything. The same border still exists and its causing issues with other programs. Any help would be awesome.

I don't know what proprietary software Dell is using on these. That is why I referred you to the Dell Alienware forum. People there should be able to help you.

Welcome to Seven Forums ZarX. As fireberd mentioned, it's a question of how they applied this theming. If using software, then it wouldn't be windows making the changes. You can try running the System File Checker, but it would likely remove all Alienware theming if it does change what you want.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

There may however be a program running. Their forums may know. I find reference to AlienGUIse

Quote:
Offered with all new Alienware systems or for download free of charge, AlienGUIse™ Theme Manager dramatically transforms the appearance of your Microsoft® Windows® operating system into a truly unique display,
I see mention of Stardock My Colors program being installed with AlienGUIse. You would find that in your installed programs. I do not know if uninstalling it would return all customizations to stock. if you try it, you could run SFC after if not. Again, I cannot guarantee the outcome.
