No, dude, what you need to do is this:

My Computer (properties)>Advanced System Settings>Advanced Tab>Performance>settings. Then select best performance.

Windows 7 Build 7600 RTM

Thanks, but I don't download those leaked builds, there are leaks like weekly, I'm not wasting all my bandwidth downloading win 7 20 times over with a few builds higher each time.

@xJason - Uh, I don't think you got my problem. That wouldn't solve it.

@ClericX - What do you mean? are you trying to change it to classic? If so, yes, thats the best way.

ClericX - xJason is giving you the easy to do what you want. I hadn't thought about doing this way until he indicated the easy way of changing to the classic mode. Just did it and it worked fine; although not sure why you want to be in classic mode (forget had awful it looked...sorry).

Thx so much xJason x3!

I actually tried it and i made my skin classic, perfect!

I'm not sure why I can't just click classic skin in the theme changing interface, but this will do until I can fix it somehow.

Thanks guys.
