SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker - Windows 7 Forums

Well, so far nothing has helped. I have tried every single thing you guys suggested, but I cant get Aero back. Should I contact the Microsoft Client Service? Tough I dont want to get an automatic answer like "Right click on your desktop, select Personalization and click on Color & Appearance".

Well, believe it or not, but the problem is fixed. Or something like that. No, I did not get Aero working, but I got the right color to the taskbar. If you view the pictures on my first post, you'll see the taskbar is on the left side of the screen. I accidentaly dragged it on the bottom of the screen and this is the result.

Did you ever have the right color when you had the task bar on the left?
It looks like Aero is working to me now.

No, I downloaded the theme after Aero stopped working.

Restore uxtheme.dll from an original instalation and choose the official Aero Theme.
