Priunord from some of your screenshots it looks to me as if that is an Aero theme your are using, but maybe not a Windows one? Are you using a 3rd party theme, like Window Blinds, for example? some of those don't play well with Win 7.

A very odd thing just happened, computer told me it had to update, and a shocking 25 updates later, odd being that I update my computer constantly, aero is working again. I was just using a theme that i chose in windows 7 nothing external. This was the first restart since re-enabling themes so that might have been it, otherwise nothing else has changed, not counting the numerous programmed I tried to run but didn't display any problems

Best guess is that it was changing themes to auto, instead of manual

heres a pic, thanks to everyone who helped
