I badly need help with my aero theme! :(

So couple days ago i installed the latest Nvidia driver and for some reason the screen flshed. Then it sayed that it needs to do a restart and if i finally got back to it the theme had changed into classic and it wont change back whatever I do. Iäve tried sfc scan to see if iäve got corrupted files which i do so i ran it for multiple times with restarting. But it wont help. I have not set a system restore point which is dumb of me and i also donät have the win 7 recovery disc Has anyone ver had this kind of problem before?
Please respond.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Is this a third-party custom theme you're trying to use or is it the default Aero theme?

You could try to run Windows Experience Index again and see if that helps.
Windows Experience Index - Update or Refresh Score

If you need a disk you can use this tutorial and it has links to the .ISO that you can burn to your own DVD.

It is the default Aero theme and i allready ran Windows Experience Index which is at 3,9. I also forgot to mention that when the theme went to classic ive been having a annoying error pop up about 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem about my Dllhost.exe program. I dont know if they are connected somehow or is that just another corrupted file etc.

Also i ran the aero troubleshooter and it gave me 2 unfixed problems. First one was that the current theme doesnät support aero. And the second one which is odd because it sayed that the desktop windows manager is disabled, but when I went to the servicess.msc it was enabled and started

Go back into services and actually click on the Stop text for Desktop Window Sessions Manager and let it stop and then click on the Start text and let it start and see what happens.

Have you tried to uninstall the Nvidia drivers and use a older driver from Dell?
