Hi guys, I need your help!

And I am not a tech genius so please try to keep the answers simple

Additionally, you can check to see if you need to run your windows experience index,

Windows Experience Index - Update or Refresh Score

And make sure you are using an Aero theme, refreshing the WEI score as above and the tutorial Windows Sniper posted should do it.
