Windows 7: Problems with AMD 12.8 and AERO

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
Problems with AMD 12.8 and AERO

Here are the error messages that I keep getting. As you can tell Aero is disabled and I can't seem to get it to run properly. I have followed the other topics open on the forum and nothing seems to work for me. I started receiving these errors just after I attempted to update my drivers from 12.6 to 12.8. I am currently using my Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor-X which only a few weeks old. I also cannot run games because of the lower error pictured. Instead of it saying MMLoadDrv.exe - Bad Image, it says "game title".exe - Bad Image.

First off bumpity bump bump.

Second. I completely swept all my drivers and tried to re-install 12.8 and received the same errors. I swept again and installed 12.6 this time and my computer now runs as usual. Is there some reason why 12.8 won't work for me?

Aero problems
This is the problem: When aero is active titles are blurry or cut. Gadgets also have problems. Often aero deactivates with a error. The problem disappears with the basic theme. That may be? My video card is a radeon 3450 hd. The windows 7 is the 7600 build... Can you help me?:huh:

Anyone having Aero Problems??
Hey everyone, Is anyone experiencing Areo problems with the color?? Like I set my theme to the nice blue glass look and then when I open recycle bin or something it will make it go back to black glass for some reason. Anyone heard about this? Any replies would be great!
