    Transparency Box

    have I have Windows Ultimate on my computer and downloaded the Dream Scenes.
    I have not been able to run it as I cannot select the Transparency Box in
    Windows Color and Appearance as the box does not appear. I have first gone
    to Theme and selected Windows Vista, when I go to Windows Color and
    Appearance, I can select Windows Aero but there is no Transparency Box to
    select. I am running a Nvidea 7600GT graphics card and I have downloaded all
    updates. I have checked on the Windows Experienc Index and my computer gets
    a score of 5.3 while the graphics card gets a score of 5.9. Can anyone tell
    me how to get the Transparency Box up so that I can select it?

    In the Personalize explorer did you check 'Themes' applet > click in the
    Themes list box and select "AERO Glass"? Also check Services to make sure
    that the Desktop Windows Manager service is running.
