(I know this has been posted several times before but none of the solutions seem to help my problem.)
So I was using my computer tonight and all of the sudden I noticed my Aero theme was gone.
I tried to set it back but when I click on the Aero theme and OK, it loads it like it should but once it says it's finished, it's still not there. And when I check my settings, it's automatically back to Windows Vista Basic.
This happened to me once before on my old laptop which was a Dell, and I never got it fixed. Now I have the same problem on my Acer. I looked it up and found an Aero troubleshooting page on here but nothing helped. I downloaded the Microsoft Fix It thing it told me to and ran through that process but it didn't work.
I've looked through my settings and I seem to have all of the basic requirements for it, and I had it before, but now it's just gone.
If I remember correctly, when this happened to my old laptop, it gave me an error when I selected the Aero theme. This time it just won't load.
Is there anything I can do to get it back? Will I have to redownload it completely?
If so, can someone link me to a safe download?
Or will something like a system restore work? (That doesn't affect my personal files, right?)
