Windows 7: Windows changes from Basic to Aero

Windows changes from Basic to Aero

Hiya there

I have a strange problem since a few months ago my PC has started changing the theme on its own, from Basic to Aero, it wont do it always, but occasionally.

Now I have heard of it doing it the other way around Aero to basic, but never this way round before and it's more of a curiosity than an annoyance as it's easy to turn it back again, but I did wonder if anyone has any ideas as to why this should be ?

I have all the latest MS updates installed etc, and the latest Nvidia driver.

Are you saving the basic theme?

Theme - Change or Save

Have a look at Option 1 Visual Effects Settings - Change
