    what i have tried;

    - changing the theme to standard and to others.*
    - rebooting ^^
    - downloading a costum theme (still thesame..)

    *The window where you can choose your theme gives a transparant icon, so transparency should be on, no?, still doesnt work..

    And i should get something like this :

    Did some more research and i found out that the aero transparency is automaticly turned off when your pc-score is lower then 3, mine is 2.9, because of my hdd..
    does this means my hdd is bad?

    btw, yesterdag before going to sleep i played some halflife2: DM, and after playing it and closed the game, it was back.. so i saved the theme etc, and turned off the PC "WITH" aero.

    Check your display settings, make sure your desktop is 32-bit colors. It may have reverted to 16-bit...
