You should just be able to activate another theme. Had you just run any programs when this happened?

I have the same thing happen with WinAVI when converting videos, it changes back once the program has finished the conversion & been closed.

I think it's due to software incompatability with the Aero effect in Vista & Se7en, this is why it's changing the theme. Is it the latest version of the software? If it is then there's not a lot that can be done, other than look fo similar programs that are designed for Vista & Se7ev.

You would have to check the setting in the software itself, other than that there's no way to change it. Not that I know of, but maybe someone might know

What orbital is saying is that there s no way to turn it off b/c the software that you are using is trying to command direct resources of the WDDM model that is currently being used by the system to display your theme - thus, it will happen every time you use that particular piece of software.

Actually - there is a way to turn it off - but that entails not using Aero at all...then you won't get the message, obviously.

It's the software's fault, not Windows, and until that software is updated, as long as you use Aero you'll get the message and it will switch.

Of course, it can also *sometimes* be dependent upon your GAs, too...since you haven't updated your system specs we can't know if it / they are contributing to the problem or not....

WRONG.
It can´t be software´s fault because MV2Player is was writed before Win XP or simultaneously with Win XP.

johngalt is 100% correct.

Was there ever Aero with Windows XP?

No, that's why some software that was designed for XP (and even Vista) will change the theme of Vista & 7. It's not designed to be used with the Aero effect as it doesn't recognise the advanced GUI utilised in it's when it's active.

There may be some software out there (ConvertXtoDVD is just 1) that ignores the operating system GUI you would need to search it out though.
