  • Windows Vista Update Kills my Computer Theme

    So I did the auto-update, and I log in, and transference and stuff won't work at all anymore. I just can't get aero to work. Any tips? Or how do I restore back?

    I'm using Vista sp2.

    I'm not sure if Vista does this (I'm on Widnows 7, and it does) but, it should create a System Restore point every time it updates. In this System Restore FAQ are instructions on how to do a System Restore.

    You might be able to uninstall the suspect update(s) in Add/Remove Programs (or is it Programs and Features in Vista?). Just look for Installed Updates on the left hand side of the window.

    Hope this helps!

      Before you go and mess with System Restore, try this first:

      1. Click on START
      2. Right-click on "Computer"
      3. Click "Properties"
      4. Click on "Windows Experience Index"
      5. Click "Re-run the assessment"

      Afterwards, Aero should come back.

      Keep in mind you might have to do this for some other major Windows update or a driver install/update from time-to-time.

        Windows Experience Index is still 5.9.

        When I try to switch to aero, the dialog box showing the preview just turns black. The option is there and I can "apply" it, but it doesn't do anything.

          I also just updated my video drivers (I have a 5870) and still no change.

          I also tired the Windows Aero Glass visual Troubleshooter and it wouldn't work, saying it "didn't apply to this computer."
