Windows 7: Registry Reverts After Reboot

Registry Reverts After Reboot


Trying to change coloring and visual effects in Windows Aero. Had it mastered once to opaque Taskbar

and Windows panes- but forgot.

Seems like I can't remove Transparency completely, either, even though it's unchecked.

As many times as I try, cant get this Registry key modification to stick. We edit the DWORD value to

'0' or '1' and on restart it reverts back to '32'.

Please note the attached photos...again, trying to get rid of visual effects-ie-transparency, glass reflection,

shading, etc., and go with an opaque look without switching to Basic Theme.
