Theme Problem

I was trying to take a quick prntscreen, I tried to hit alt+printscreen, but i must have miss keyed somehow. Well whatever I pressed, popuped up a little message saying some color was changed. Now none of my title bars are are transparent, they are all a solid sky color. I tried going in and changing my theme back, but nothing I do works! I tried following some of the tutorials here, but somethings not matching up. I select the windows 7 aero theme, then I click on window color, but it does not popup the screen with the transparency options. It pops up the old windows window color menu. Here is a screenshot Imageshack - theme Please help, I'm really disliking how this looks

There is a way to bring back the color that you want, but I do not know what it is. You could research and wait for others and if you get the right answer, great. If you get tired of waiting try system restore, I am sure it will work.

First, "Welcome to the Seven Forums"
Now for the silly question: Did you attempt a restart to see if that fixed the problem?

If so then attempt a system restore. This is usually the easiest way to fix unwanted problems.

If system restore doesn't work please post back here for more help, Good Luck.

Simply restarting the computer worked.
