Windows 7: Having problem with Full glass.exe

Having problem with Full glass.exe

I hope that this problem hasn't been discussed before, but I spent some time on searching for some useful information but I had no luck.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x32. I tried installing glass templates and I had the same issue every time I installed one.

1. (following all the steps of tutorials about installing templates) I tried installing a glass template. After I did this, the windows turn black (I have posted some pictures below).

2. After running Full glass.exe (as administrator), the windows are finally transparent but any program I run or any right click is black. The name of any folder I move my cursor on (or selected folders) turns into an unreadable bold font. Every time I restart my computer, if I do not run Full glass.exe, all my windows turn black again.

I even tried reinstalling my operating sistem but nothing changed. I am obviously doing something wrong and I really need some help.

If anyone could please give me some advice, I would be totally grateful.
Thank you.

The one I am using in the screenshots is:
In Vitro Full Glass Theme for Windows 7 Rapidshare Hotfile Torrent download

When I run this: http://nguyenxuanhoa.deviantart.com/...enxuanhoa&qo=1
same problems except that when I right click, the menu's background is classic gray (I'm not sure if the theme should change that into glass)

And when I run this: Win7 all-glass theme: Fantasy
same thing.

And I tried many other glassy themes that I deleted before thinking that they have a bug or something.

I was thinking about the fact that wen i move my mouse over a folder, it's name turns excessively bold because it is made for certain types of backgrounds (the text is white maybe because it was made for a dark background) and when the background is bright, the text highlights so that it can be obvious and distinctive from the bright background. If this is true, is there a way to modify the text color to make it black? I tried doing this from the windows settings but it seems to be working only if you have no theme applied.

Just check them out
You need a dark background for them to work & still some of the text is hard to see, that happens with all glass themes.

Thank you Jerry. I think I'll pick a normal theme then. I like the way glass themes look but it isn't what it seems to be. Again I thank you very much for your help and if I ever have an issue with windows, I will definitely use this forum
