Just to clarify, did you click on the "Update My Score" link in Control
Panel (Classic View) > Performance Information and
Tools? It's on the right-hand side of the page, beneath the big "Base
Score" 4.8 picture. (I don't need to know your score so much, but rather
whether or not you clicked on that link). If you updated your score by
clicking on that link, going back to Control Panel>Personalization > Window
Color and Appearance, are the Aero options available? Did you retry the
suggestions noted in the previous posts as to turning on Aero, after
updating your score?
Too, in Control Panel > Personalization > Display Settings, is your color
set to Highest (32-bit)?
