I was frustrated when I couldn't get the Aero Theme back after some Registry changes and reboot. I went to the "control panel" then clicked on "system and maintenance" then clicked on "performance information and tools" and finally clicked on the left pane option "adjust visual effects". I even tried a system restore and it didn't restore successfully. Odd that this was necessary, since the old drivers worked just fine up until now, but I'm glad to have my Aero back.

I have several updates with that date and don't know which one I'm supposed to get rid of. If it's not, then enable it and then you probably have to reboot. Facing Problems in Applying Theme? Click on properties.
