Win7 32bit - Aero Problems

Last night my Nvidia Geforce GTX9800+ died. So I went out to the store and picked up a brand new EVGA GTS450 1024mb GDDR5 (fermi) card. Everything is working just fine except my Aero. I've tried trouble shooting using every method in the world it feels like but still to no avail.

I've tried restoring to a previous date.
I've tried searching Aero in my start menu and trying to use the repair tool.
I've tried selecting and downloading 20+ Aero Themes

My Taskbar and Start menu aren't in classic mode is says, it says they are in Aero; but they aren't transparent nor will it let me adjust any advanced settings.

Only thing I haven't tried is doing a reinstall.

Well, let's see if it's true that isn't the only thing you haven't tried

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

SFC will restore original system files, so 3rd party themes won't work unless you patch again, but since you have problems anyway, that would be best.

Before doing a complete reinstall, you'd want to try a Repair Install

No run as administrator option?

I would look to the repair install if your problems are more than the Aero issue. A Guy

Edit:

Try booting to safe mode with command prompt, and run SFC from there

May be best. The repair install will leave your documents and programs intact. Good luck, let us know how it turns out. A Guy
