It was back!

Here it goes!
Im going to restart and hope to god everything is working!

Okay so, I restarted, and!.... It didnt work
the aero themes stopped working again. BUT
since I created a system restore point before I restarted, tada!
Its back
Its weird because, when I did the system restore, I got a message box saying "system restore did not work successfully, you system files were not changed"
But its working

I think something may be wrong with my video card, or computer
If it continues to happen, I think Id rather live without it working, then go to geek squad and pay $200 or more!

Ill be sure to post back if I figure something out!

Your card isnt properly suppported by W7, and your system is unstable as a result - you should try installing a earlier driver in compatibility mode with vista - 9.3

Thank you Whest for the reply!
It was actually working really good!
I even restarted several times and it was still working.

but its not working anymore..
I think I give up!

Is there anyway that I can change the color of the taskbar? and start menu, ect.
even though I dont have aero themes

thats half the reason I really want my aero themes to work
I love the transparent windows and such, also, when you hover over programs on the taskbar, it has a little preview window

But I've seriously tried, EVERYTHING.
I dont know what else I can do

Aero stops working, won't work again until restart
Can't quite nail down when this happens but from time to time the Aero effects will stop working. So far it does seem to happen if the screen has been blank for awhile (screen saver) but something else has to happen as well because that by itself doesn't cause the issue. This last time it...
