Windows 7: Windows 7 taskbar changed to basic view and won't change back

this is so frustrating - whenever i run SFC and restart, everything comes back up as it should - aero and all, basic view is gone and everything's fine.
if i shut down or restart w/o SFC, it'll start windows with the yucky basic view.

any idea how i can find out what's causing this? cuz the SFC finishes the scan with "did not find any integrity violations".

hi sometimes you have to run the scan a few times even though windows does not tell you all it does it does hidden repairs check your aero settings graphic card driver etc.
