Data Store File Missing, Unable Select Aero or Basic themes
I had been having problems with being able to select Aero or Basic themes. I have been in Windows Classic for 6-8 months and never thought to change it. Today when trying to switch to an Aero theme I noticed both Aero and Basic are grayed out and unselectable. After reading forums and looking for solutions I came across one that mentioned deleting all files in your DataStore directory except for the most recent file. I went to find my DataStore Directory in WinSat and found it was missing. I have tried google searching for what to do when it is missing but seemed unable to find anything relevant. My PC is not what it used to be due to hardware failures causing me to use old PC parts from past machines, but in it's current state has had Aero running with no problems in the past. Current specs are:
Processor: E8400 @3Ghz
Ram: 1g (I know sad!) DDR2 667
HDD: 300GB Seagate Baracuda 7200 RPM 32mb cache
Video Card: OnBoard Northbridge, Intel G45 Express Chipset.
