Aero problems with Alienware themes

i'm currently running Windows 7 alienware. problem is, when i try to switch to installed alienware themes, aside from the aero themes, the taskbar and window appearance becomes the classic style (like in windows 98) instead of being aero..

what can i do about this?
thanks for future responses.

Did this computer come with Alienware theme installed already?
Do any of the other Installed Themes work like I see you have Dark7Ultimate?
Try this
Click on start button in the search box type Aero and look for Find and fix problems with transparency click on it and check for problems

Hello wewinjiggy to re-iterate Bongos question above "Did this computer come with Alienware theme installed already?" because if it did not and you installed it separately then you will have to follow this tutorial Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7 to make your theme work.

Also had the same problem with some themes still remaining the classic style after patching when I try to enable them if my DPI is set above 124% (screen resoloution > make text or other items larger or smaller). Changing the DPI to between 100% and 124% solved my problem.
