    after using ccc.exe to try and overclock my cpu (with bad results) it reset my windows theme to the old look(solid color) and i cant get it to go back to the transparent look. ive tried numerous options with no success. when i attempt to change the 'window color' it takes me to the older 'windows color and appearance' menu. not the normal win 7 menu. any ideas? troubleshooting says theres no problem.

    It's not the Window Color you need to change, its the Theme, change it back to the Aero Theme.

    Also, I've edited you post, no need to swear in a family oriented forum.
