Windows 7: Aero themes Menu not transparent

Aero themes Menu not transparent


I have always had problems when installing aero themes to my Windows 7 not getting the menu drop down box to turn transparent like the rest of the window. I never knew how to properly install the themes like the .dll files I left out. Finally I tried to install these files and couldn't because the computer crashed and had to restore the files. So I thought of dropping a post to see if anyone could give some advice for a quick and easy solution about how to fix this problem. Thanks.

Can I have non-transparent aero?
It seems like my computer doesn't support running Aero, so now I'm stuck with the basic theme. I was just wondering if I could have the Aero theme without any transparencies, superbar thumbnails, or any other fancy effects, just the different window styles. I remember being able to do that with...
