Windows 7: Peronalization Panel for Windows 7 Starter?

Peronalization Panel for Windows 7 Starter?

After a failed Windows Update(I think that's the cause of this problem), my Windows theme went back to the default theme for Starter/Home Basic.

What I want is a personalization panel that works just like in Home Premium and above. I used to have a program that is exactly the personalization panel but ever since I opened it a few hours ago, my computer keeps saying that I need to upgrade my OS.

I have already downloaded this personalization panel patch thing made for Windows 7 Starter/Home Basic, but nothing happened after a restart. Can someone tell how to get a personalization panel that would give me a transparent taskbar and the aero peek? I can't seem to remember the program I was referring to earlier that functions exactly like the Windows panel...

Btw I already have a program that allows me to change the wallpaper...I just need my old personalization panel back to have the aero theme again...

This possibly should go in the hardware forum since it involves the motherboard as well but being a sound issue I assume here would be better. I have an Asus Xonar DG sound card on an Asus P7P55D-E LX motherboard (and AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series video card) running on Windows 7 Home Premium...

Windows 7 starter
My son bought a EEEPC 1001 or something like that. It has W7 starter as OS. Is this netbook capable of running any of the higher spec W7 Os's without to much of a problem? Without getting back to him I don't know what the ram situation is. Any hints or advice on that? Thanks
