    I downloaded something that wasn't compatible with windows vista so it said
    it was going to change my appearance to Windows vista basic. I removed the
    program and now I cant get it back to the other settings.

    Try right-clicking on the desktop and see if you can change your
    setting back to where they were.

    Hi Bonnie--

    1) Rt. Click Desktop>Personalize>Windows Color and Appearance>Enable
    Transparence>Click Hyperlink>Open Clasic Appearance>Color Scheme>Windows
    Aero>Apply.

    This should work.

    Additional Steps if Needed:

    2) Regedit:

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\Composition

    Value Data: 1

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\DWM\CompositionPolicy

    Value Data: 2


    3) Click on the Start Menu and search "cmd". When it finds it, hold down
    Ctrl&Shift and press Enter to enter Command Prompt as Administrator.

    type the following:

    net stop uxsms

    (press Enter)

    net start uxsms

    (press Enter)
