Try updating your graphics drivers.

Thanks @tazz your SuperUser link got me on the right track. For me it wasn't the `Themes` service but the `Desktop Window Manager Session Manager` service which I had to restart. None of the other fixes here (or there) worked for me. I also updated Windows 7 Aero theme - no found fix - Super User
