Windows 7: How to change overall theme? Please help!

How to change overall theme? Please help!

Hallo,

A while ago a new Windows program was installed on my PC by the computer-tech guy who always fixes my computer.

The program was called "Windows Eternity". I don't know if this was illegal or not, but the tech guy seem highly impressed by his installation.

One day, we had a power surge - the computer went out. I turned it on again and Windows Eternity was completely gone and in its place Windows 7. (?!?!)

I've had Windows 7 before and noticed a difference between the two - the Windows 7 I once had, had a smooth, see through theme. The new Windows is grey and ugly - its appearance looks OLD.

I don't care about WIndows Eternity or whatever, 7 will do just fine.

But How can I change its ugly appearance back to the old smooth, see through appearance?

THANK YOU!!

You need to switch to an Aero theme as what you're seeing is one of the Basic themes.

Just right-click your desktop and choose Personalize then select an Aero theme that you like.

I have done this, but it simply won't change.

Also, the wallpapers don't change smoothly from one to the other - they just appear one after the other.

In that case, I think it's time your smug tech-guy removed the software.

Did he get your permission first? If not, give him a blast.

Have you tried uninstalling Windows Eternity?

You could also try a system restore to a point in time before the power surge occurred.
