There are some fixes on the web but they've never worked for me, only a clean reinstall.

Be sure to wipe your HD to overwrite any infected or corrupt code. SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

This is probably not as likely to be your problem, but I'm just throwing it out there. If your screen's resolution is below 1024x768 (like on most netbooks), the Windows 7 boot-up screen defaults to the Vista one.

Do you have a choice of better screen resolution when you rightclick on the Desktop?

I've never seen resolution that poor in Win7. Is this a netbook thing?

Yes....my netbook boots up Vista style. I was always led to believe it was due to the small screen size, the resolution for the Windows 7 boot screen cannot be achieved.
