Hi Toffix,

Post your system specs, you might not even be able to have aero enabled.

You need to have Aero enabled to use them, which you don't have from your screenshot. Update your graphics card drivers if you haven't already, Run the WEI, and see if these are checked here.

Yeah, you can have Aero enabled. Try the suggestions I posted earlier, see if it will help.

Oh, I see. You're using the Windows Classic theme there, you won't have Aero with those ''Basic and High Contrast Themes''. All the themes in this screenshot below the line won't use Aero, the ones above where it says ''Aero'', will.

A week I was using Aero themes, but something happened and now I only can use Classic themes.

Hmm, Did you try to install any third party themes or do any modifications to any system files at that time? A long shot but check to make sure you're not running 16 bit colors instead of 32 bit, as it should be on 32 bit.

Run SFC/Scannow with an elevated cmd prompt to see if it might pick up and repair any system file corruption/damage.
