Did you recently update the graphics card drivers?

I know that older ATI cards have a difficult time with drivers beyond 11.7. The drivers in the 12.x range are actually intended for the 6000 and 7000 series cards and can cause problems with older cards. I have an HD 4850, and the newer drivers wreaked havoc on my system to an extent, so I removed them and let Windows choose the appropriate files for me.


Also, please provide us with your sfcdetails.txt file by following OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

This is the file that is corrupted:
aero.msstyles

This file is normally located at:
C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero

You can go thru the agony of extracting that file out of your Win 7 DVD or you can go to another 64 bit computer,
copy the file to a usb stick and then paste the file into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero

You really should, so that we can be of better assistance, use the following procedure to fill out your system specs:

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.
