Windows 7: Aero is Missing

Aero is Missing

So I just reinstalled Windows (Premium 64) and now Aero appears to be missing, I tried forcing it through a hack but that didn't work.

So what should I do get Aero again?

Thanks For Reading.

No, I installed them before I even made this topic and they still weren't working so I asked around here.

Wait never mind I got it fixed now.

Click on Start Orb, type Aero...choose option "Fix and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects".

That's worked numerous times for me in the past.

That actually was the first thing I tried said Windows cannot repair the promlem.

Mind you I fixed myself by going to Desktop > Personalize >Aero Themes > Windows 7

Thanks for responding.

Could you post a screen shot of your personalization. There should be a troubleshooter for the aero feature there. Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero

Edit: yes, also work on Pparks suggestion.

Had the same problem Run sfc /scannow and your computer will fix it. If it can't then get a patched uxtheme and run it. After I restarted It came back! And I did this in my Home basic. Now it looks like a windows ultimate cuz of personalization panel!
