Windows 7: Windows Aero not working properly

17 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Glad to help. Again, I don't recommend changing system files like explorer.exe and another .dll

But there is a very neat little app called "Start Button Changer", if you haven't heard of it before, you should definitely give it a try, as it is very fast and effective.

Windows 7 Aero Problems


I have recently installed Windows 7 on my pc. I downloaded all the needed drivers for my hardware, but all of a sudden my windows theme starts contantly changing. (look at the pics attached) The theme is the Windows 7 theme, but the top of all my windows that I open (Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, administrator permission window etc...) it looks like the standard windows theme and my desktop color changes to black. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this? (and notice how the bottom right notification area is messed up)

ZMatrix on Windows 7 not working properly.
I've used ZMatrix in the past, and now that I'm setting up a triple-monitor setup I think it would look really cool to use again. Basically it's supposed to be a program that runs the Matrix "code" over your desktop wallpaper, but behind your desktop icons and taskbar. For some reason it's over...
