Did you do STEP ONE first?

If so, try downloading and extracting the .reg file again. Perhaps something had happened to it when you tried the first time.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Background display issue


I'm facing a problem.
Well, sadly, I have the "Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family" VGA, and I think it is the reason of my problem.

The problem that I'm facing is, right after I Start the Desktop Windows Manager again, everything turns black, some parts of the screen shows sometimes, like, when I press Alt+Tab, but everything is messed up.
I had to restore the backed up 2 files to the System32 folder to make it normal again.

Is there any solution for this? or I can't enable full transparency on my VGA?

Thanks in Advance.

Hello Tawa, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure what the problem may be. Double check to make sure that you have the latest graphics drivers installed, and check to see if you may have made a mistake in the steps somewhere.

Hey guys, thanks for the reply,

Brink, I did the steps three times, so it has to be from my driver.

Strangely, the driver of my VGA is newer than the one found on the Intel Website.
As I recall, this driver was automatically downloaded in the windows updates (I check my updates before downloading them). This is why I did not suspect that the reason is from the driver.

Those are my details:

Anyways, I'm downloading the one from the Website, I'll tell you if this will fix my problem.

EDIT: Oh wait, I didn't know they use the mm/dd/2009 date format on Intel Website so I guess I was wrong about my driver being up to date.

EDIT: Nope, didn't work. I'm starting to loose hope

Anything else on mind guys?

Hello Winsev,

Sorry, but not by default. You would need some sort of 3rd party skinning program for something like that instead.

Windows 7 (x64)

Hi Brink Merry Christmas to you sir,

I'm just thought I would ask if there is a way i can mod my "dwn.exe" and "uDWM.dll" from my retail build that i currently have?

This is one of the first thing's I still do after a clean install to me it like running a different theme it just makes windows that much clearer.

The reason i ask is this is pretty much a permanent mod for me of every install i do and would like to be able to use up to date system files.
