Windows 7: Help With Compatibility Settings

Help With Compatibility Settings

Hi all,
Turning to these forums in desperation. I was having trouble running a program so I tried running it in compatibility settings (Windows Vista) which was recommended. The program still wouldn't run so I uninstalled it but now I am stuck in what looks like Windows Vista. I have the Vista log in screen, the Vista background, my screen/desktop settings are all stretched, and I feel like I'm still in this compatibility mode even though that program is no longer installed. Can someone help me check/restore defaults?

Hello Chernzobog, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What was the program?

Are you using an Aero theme?
Theme - Change or Save
For now, you should be able to do a system restore using a restore point dated before this to hopefully undo and fix this.

Hope this helps for now,
