Reformatted PC, now missing aero theme
Im running on Windows Vista Business and I recently reformatted my computer
only to find that now I dont have the Aero theme available. Does anyone know
why this might have happened and how I can fix it? THanks a lot for your
time and help

Re: Reformatted PC, now missing aero theme
Download the newest drivers for your video card from the video card
manufacturer. That is probably most likely the cause...

Try what Dustin has suggested above. Also try right-clicking on the
desktop, select Personalize. Click on Themes and select the default
Windows Vista themes.

Next, in Windows Color & Appearance, ensure that Enable Transparency is
checked.

Also ensure that 'Desktop Windows Manager' Service is set on Automatic.


Now, inspite of this, you still find that Aero does not work, or your
Aero has stopped working, simply copy-paste the following command in
Vista Start Menus Search Box, and hit Enter.

rundll32.exe Dwmapi.dll,DwmEnableComposition

This will re-enable Aero by flushing it.
