Windows 7: Windows 7 Themes interfering with FireFox/Gadgets useability

Okay, I am doing another scan now and will do one more after reboot (followed by another reboot).

- update, so I am going to use system restore, here are the restore points



So it looks like Classic Shell would be a good point to restore to and could be causing the problems.

OK guys, system restore was the cure.

All that I need to fix now is to auto hide the lock bar and remove the user picture from the start menu (easy).

Thanks a lot for your patience and all of your suggestions.

I did extensive searching on Google beforehand, but due to the keywords I only received unwanted links.

Problem solved.

So do you think it's safe to say that 'Classic Shell' was causing the problem?

I like the fact that it successfully got rid of the start menu picture, however it obviously causes problems.

I've tried other fixes online (even some offered in these forums) but none of the software based fixes worked.

Do you guys know of a way to do it through the registry or other settings?

It's not super important, but I figure this is a good place to ask.

Well, I use Classic shell for that purpose, and no issues. You also installed AVG at the same time, so it's also a possibility. You can try Classic Shell again to see if any issues. I used NoUserPicture before that, although I had to manually click the exe at times.

I downloaded the file and extracted it with winrar to the desktop, clicked on the program and the dialog box opened and said it was fixed, but nothing changed and after restarting nothing changed..

Hmmm, worked for me when I used it. Had it in my startup. Since I liked the Classic Shell cascading all programs, and it very handily removed the user picture, I stopped using it. If I were you, I'd make a restore point then try Classic Shell again. The developer is a member here BTW. A Guy

Is there a way to install classic shell without it automatically altering your start menu upon installation?

All I would need it for is just simply removing the user account picture from the start menu, but last time I installed it it automatically changed it to a classic menu and only gave me three option to choose from for the start menu (none of which were remotely similar to mine). The one that was closest to mine looked like the windows 7 Aero start menu. I didn't feel like backtracking all of the fields to get it back to how I had it, so I just restored to before I installed.

Was there some category I missed where you can just keep your current (pre-installation) start menu?


I almost don't want to download the program for one minor change, but its the only solution that has worked (among 4 other 'fixes').

Thanks

That was the second or third method I tried and it never worked.

Oh well, it's really one of the most minor things to worry about.
