My Windows 7 GUI suddenly became Windows 98 style. How can I switch back to the Aero one? I tried using "Personalize" but it didn't work.

Right click on desktop, click personalize, click windows 7 Aero theme, and click apply.

Uhm... it didnt work, either.

The built-in troubleshooter for Aero themes also failed. Maybe I should try a Placebo theme.

Can you go back to a restore point before you ran into this issue?

OK, it worked this time. Sorry for the wait. Was using the living room TV to browse the forum.

Anyways, thanks!

Try reinstalling graphics drivers

I even went as far as uninstall and reinstall. It did nothing. Install AMD official driver led to a BSOD.

The other user (my dad) seems to be OK. So maybe I did sth...

Also tried that out, but the settings just keep going back as before.

Yup, I did. Also tried sfc /scannow but it found nothing.
