Windows 7: Missing Buttons (close, maximize, etc...)

10 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Are you using a custom theme? If so, try putting the files again in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes to see if it fixes any corruption within this. If you are using a built-in Aero theme, try running "sfc /scannow" under the Command Prompt or even a System Restore if this happened recently.

SFC found nothing. After about thirteen tries to get ATI drivers to install (biggest PITA ever) it seems to have resolved the issue. Thanks everyone for your help!
