Most likely you need more RAM
But try this just in case.
Click on the Start Button type in Services In the search box and then click on Services

Scroll down until you see Desktop Windows Manager Sessions Manager select it in click on the Stop text and let it stop after that click on Start text and see if that works. Your screen may blink when you do this.

Do the same thing with Unsigned Themes if there.

Double check the Windows 7 "Themes" Service is running.

Some folks, including me, followed a performance tweak and were stuck with the Windows 7 toolbar being a white (Windows Classic). Altering the theme did not correct this. It turned out the Themes service was not automatic.

If you have this problem, where Desktop (right-click) "Personalize" "Windows Color" showing only as Windows Classic).

Run "services.msc", ensure the "Themes" service is Automatic (and Started). That is the Windows 7 default mode for this Service.

Then you can then select any Windows Aero theme and it will provide the toolbar transparency again

Thanks for this, Jerry. I just had a problem where I couldn't change the colour of the taskbar on my aero theme. This fixed it. Much appreciated.

Aero Not working

In order for aero to run, you need to establish a system rating first, this way Windows will know if your hardware will support aero features.

To get your system rating, go to system properties and run the System Rating.
