LOL, it's not as bad as it sounds.

Something's probably being overlooked, but I can't think of it other than the suggestions I've already said.

Don't worry Toffix, a Repair Install will not cause you any issues (it doesn't format).

Have you run a WEI check? If Windows somehow reports an Aero score of less than 2.0 it will 'force' Windows Basic themes.

I already suggested that in my first post, if you haven't done it, that's one of the first things you need to do.
