Preferred Solution: Problems after modifications of my windows themes.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

WIndows 7 ultimate 32 bits 1) when using a default theme, the background changes by itself. perfect. 2)when i create a NEW theme with my own backgrounds it works just fine FOR JUST 20 minutes or so. After this time or if I reboot, windows creates a "unsaved theme" with just the current background picture and no more slideshow. Cursor, sounds and all other things are unaffected. Tried to do it with different images, less iamges, more images but same thing happens; windows keeps creating "unsaved" themes and only uses my own, saved theme for a short time. THis is a brand new installation. "custom install" thank you

Hey guys,

i checked the forums if someone has a similar problem to mine, but didnt find anything. If i just overlooked it im sorry, my english isnt the best, so i maybe just searched wrong.

But here is my problem. I am using custom themes for my win7 x64. I used universal theme patcher to be able to do so.

Now i have several problems, first of: the back- and forward button and the windows icon in the taskbar doesnt change.

But my biggest problem is that sometimes, not everytime i run the computer, i get this weird horizontal stripes. Most of the time they are black, but sometimes they are white.

The screenshot seems a little bit strange. Thats because i took a screenshot, of me editing a previous screenshot in paint. I did this because while i edited it, more lines appeared.

Im using the spaceblueberries theme from deviantart, but this doesnt matter cause all of the problems occur on any custom theme. The second problem with the bars even appears in the normal win 7 aero theme from windows.

Guess i broken something somewhere :/

My biggest problem is the second one, and i highly assume that it is because of the custom theme. Im also running rocket dock in the background but thats basically it.

Hope someone knows a solution and thanks in advance

Edit: heres the screen:

A:Strange visual bugs and problems with custom themes for win7

Welcome to the Seven Forums

If this is happening with all third-party custom themes and the Windows 7 default Aero theme then I am making a guess that it is your graphic card drivers may need to be updated, go to your computer makers website and look for the latest drivers using your model number

Just purchased a new computer with the win 7 installed. I believe that this is the bottom version of the OS.
I read that you can increase the capability of the factory version by purchasing a "software key" that improves the OS.

Hi there,

So, i own a pc, a laptop and an xbox 360 and they are all connected to my home network via a router. now, when i have all three of these running at the same time it can cause a great deal of annoyance and confusion when we are all trying to compete for the most amount of bandwidth,

For example, my brother will be playing halo 2 and have msn open and i will be trying to surf the net on my laptop. now my brother will be complaing that he is not getting "host" and spends some of his games in red bar and my internet pages take a few minutes to load.

so i was wondering if there are any programs or freeware out there that i can go and buy so that i can modify it so that i can tell my router to give my xbox (lets say....) 60 percent of my bandwidth while splitting the other 40% between the two computers and then when the xbox is off it diverts the bandwidth to where it is needed most

If there is anything out there that can help me please post a name and/or link and it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Is the small cylinder around the cord about 3" before it enters the laptop some sort of choke/filter?

There is no particular reason for this, either side of the power supply could be lengthened or shortened.

New to XP (media center sp2), not new to Windows OS. Are there any "out of the box" tweaks/modifications that are recommended? Any XP tweak guides? I am not a gamer, don't overclock...just want it stable and lean without all the unecessary background apps running and dont need all the superfluous software.

For example, do many with XP disable system restore? I did with my old OS as I have an external HD withh system backup images. Should I keep the "enable write caching on the disk" checked in the HD setting in the device manager? Is Corel Photo CCentter bundled with any other software? I have many other questions, but willl settle for feedback first.

Also, if anyone has recently purchased a Dell E510 (or other Dell) can you tell me all the trial ware that I can uninstall? I am afraid to get rid of too much because I fear its bundled into other apps that I need. I curse the OEMs for doing this.

Hi all, I've been hard at work in modifiying my watercooling unit, I know it is not such a good product, but after modifications it is amazing. Soon I will post some pictures if anyone is interested. Here is a list of what I've done:

1. Drained the system
2. Took it apart
3. Took out all stock fans, replaced with Antec Led Fans
4. Took out the restrictive stock tubing, replaced with Tygon 3/8
5. Ran leak test for 3 hours, at the beginning there was one leak, which I fixed with some tightening of c-clamp.
6. Modified front panel, placed another grill, as well as the back panel
7. Modified knob lightning

After all this, when I replaced the tubing, I immediately noticed that the flow meter was spinning much faster, and this effectively reduced my temperatures about 2-3 Celsius at load. Replacing the fans, with better airflow and quieter fans also brought the temps down 1-2 Celsius, also the use of Danger Den MCT-5 Coolant brought my temperatures down 2-3 Celsius as well.
In the end, I used to get a load temp of about 44 Celsius, now I only get about 37-38 Celsius. Quite pleased with the project and acheivement. If you guys want pictures, or illustrations of how I did this, just ask. I will post them later.

Hi all, I don't know a lot about computers, so bear with me... I just inherited an HP Pavilion HPE h8-1050 Desktop computer (http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02859331).  It came with Windows 7, and I plan on upgrading to Windows 10 before the July 26th "free upgrade" deadline. (although I could be talked out of that, if it matters).   I would, ideally, like to install Realtek Audio Manager to replace the Beats Audio that the machine came with.  From what I've read online, it seems that it may not be possible.  I plan to do some audio recording on this new machine, and I don't really want everything filtering through Beats, with its kooky settings and sound manipulations.   I tried to download the Realtek Audio Driver, but after the install it doesn't show up anywhere (other than Add/Remove Programs, strangely).  It doesn't appear in Control Panel, or Device Manager, or Programs.   The only file that shows up in a computer-wide search is the setup file, which I've run twice.  I certainly don't have the option or access to choose it over Beats.  I have a feeling it's simply not compatible.   So I guess my question is this: Is there a modification I can make to this machine (ie, new sound card?) so that I can install and use Realtek? Or is Beats simply hardwired into the motherboard in such a way that there are no alternatives.   Thanks for reading,Nathan

Hello there, I am thinking of puchasing an M710 and I had a few questions I am hoping people could answer for me before taking the plunge. In terms of the power supply I belive its quite low wattage, in the low 200's - is it possible to upgrade this at a later date. I may down the line wish to buy a graphics card and I know it will need a better psu. In terms of graphics cards, the power should be the only issue, the case itself is big enough to fit some standard graphics cards. For RAM, how many RAM slots are there? if I get the 8GB option, is that going to be one stick of 8 or 2x4gbs - again if I want to upgrade this, will there be an available slot, or will I have to get rid of the exsisting RAM? I am going to add an SSD, will they automatically load the OS on the SSD as opposed to the standard 500gb hard drive? Thanks a lot in advance

I guess I'll ask this here as I cannot get through to RT Se7en Lite themselves. I used eicfg removal so I can have my install USB work for any of the versions. When I go to use RT Se7en Lite it asks which version I want to modify. I think the somewhat minor things I want to change will work for all if not most of the versions. Will it actually modify them all or is there any way to select more than one version or do I have to do each individually? Or run the eicfg after I do mods?

Also does anyone know what is with RT Se7en Lite? I sent an email to their support email and I get (several days of) messages that it is not deliverable: 454 4.7.0 TLS not available due to local problem. Their main website will never connect.

it is quite annoying since i use keyboard shortcuts alot like ctrl+arrow keys to navigate on some texts.

Ad-Watch event log
Root:HKEY_CURRENT USER
Key:software\microsoft\internetexplorer\main
value: search page
data:http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch
new data:http://www.google.com

Is this connected to MS' Windows Live Page that comes up with the opening of IE6?
Any input or help on what is going will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
 

A:Ad-Watch showing continuous registry modifications

It looks like you had microsoft live search set as your search engine possibly when you installed a windows live component and then you installed something like google toolbar which wants to change it to google.

Did you approve or deny the change?

OR just turn off adwatch , make the change and turn it back on.

Hi - I'm new here so please be kind.

I have just bought a Packard Bell IMEDIA A3317 - 3G, triple Phenom core, graphics & sound integrated in motherboard, 320G HD, Vista Home basic. No driver discs included, but 2 created from within Vista for a) Vista re-install and b) Apps Drivers

I need to do ASP programming, so tried loading Win 2000 Professional (SP4) onto a new 320G HD. Sadly, the only screen resolution that works is 640/480 . I obviously need win2000 Pro drivers - since this is a standard package computer, one would imagine that they would be available as a block somewhere, but no joy in finding them.

The screen resolution hinders (prevents) setup of internet access, so I can't access Driver Robot over the net (driver robot needs to work on the machine with the problem)

There is a PCI-E slot, but am not sure if that would be a solution.

This must be a problem others have faced somewhere (or am I the only one!!!!! ) Any ideas on where to get a package of drivers? or what else I could do?

Thanks in advance

Tsarina

P.S. I know it isn't the best of machines, but my needs are very simple - just a little ASP development and writing letters.

Can anyone recommend any good software for logging computer modifications and maintenance? I support my family and friends and sometimes it's hard to keep all all the changes I have done over the years in my lil noggin. Also it would help me log fixes so I could reference if someone else had the same issue I could more easily reference the fix.

Hello,

I wonder what the best tool for Windows XP is for viewing recent (preferrably as specified by user) modifications to the registry, including hidden ones if that is possible?

this REALLY bothers me. because i do EXACTLY what it says and it never works.http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/UXTh...nload-2802.htmlaccording to this, all i have to do is download this, and replace the existing uxtheme.dll and i should be able to use 3rd party themes. but it doesnt work.i had a nice apple theme that worked when i had Stlye XP installed. but 2 things:1) they make u have to pay after a month for it to continue working2) those stupid theme programs use up the computers computing powerthere you can see the theme, panther. i can see it when i go to my computer. double clicking it just brings up the properties window, but no theme is there. just xp and classic.i go to the display properties where u select the theme and go to browse...i go to the panther folder and the theme doesnt show up. it only displays Theme files. Panther (and other 3rd party themes) all say Visual style file. and dont show up under browse.so i dont know what to do. i just want to use new themes without paying or having another program runing just to display it. that patch says its supposed to work.

Hello everybody.

I use Windows XP on this box and want to make it look like KDE or GNOME.

I use Style XP, so if anyone could tell me of a good GNOME or KDE theme that would be great.

Good site really safe http://www.wincustomize.com/ , but if your worried about downloading why don't you download them zipped then scan them before install, in fact you don't even have to zip them to do that just scan them before opening them anyhow !Happy Themeing !

How do I make my own themes? And why when I was changing a theme did my menu screen thingy go black? I couldn't even see to do a system restore. I started it up in safe mode and I couldn't see it there either. I finally got into the properties on my desktop and fumbled till I got a good theme. OH! What a mess that was!
Thank you
 

A:Windows XP Themes

Usually when you change themes your screen darkens, maybe you just had a really dark theme, and when it darkened it looked almost black. This usually lasts for a bit until the new theme is in use.

If you want to install themes check out Windows Blinds, or google for uxtheme.dll as an alternative.

If you want to edit or make your own themes check out Skin Studio.
Hope that answers any questions you had.
Regards,

Joe

I've been wondering, are there any nice custom themes for Windows 8 instead of the stock look? Thanks!
Really been playing around with the customization of my lappy.

A:Themes for Windows 8

Well, one of the first would be ClassicShell

Next essential is,, Decor8 - Personalize the Windows? 8 Start screen with Decor8?!

Then look at this... http://www.eightforums.com/customiza...ndows-8-a.html

As for actual themeing, there are successes and failures.
There are methods, but they can break Windows.

We are really waiting for StarDock, WindowBlinds and other stuff to get more developed, if ever.

I download themes from the Internet and installed them via the path...c:\program files\plus\themes....

They default to the correct folder but there is never a picture available to see with the theme.

The colors and sounds and all the rest of it are there but the picture is aways lacking. Any suggestions?

I have done this countless times with windows 98 but with XP it is just not working.

If you enjoy themes, try "Stardocks" WindowBlinds, it has around 1500 themes, some include wallpaper, cursors, etc, its shareware, but I think well worth the price, and you can see what your gettings.
