Vista Aero Dissapeared

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I ran Sisoft Sandra 2007 in Windows Vista not thinking that anything bad could happen and did a performance scan. Well the computer totally froze couldn't even move my mouse. So i decided to do a hard restart and go back in to vista. Everything seemed fine but now my background is just blank. Startmenu looks like 98. And some programs can't start cuz of Visual Effects or something. My windows vista aero theme is gone. It's under options but when I click windows aero it tells me that the visual styles could not be applied. Is there a place where I can re download aero? I just want the visual effects back and such haha. anyone?

Make sure Sandra isn't running on the taskbar or anything, because it may be running it Windows 98 mode for compatibility for some reason which disables Aero.
