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.

Just try the Repair install. It doesn't take very long to do.
