Found 8th Feb 2010
Have just reset my laptop after having bad viruses hit bad, Upon reseting it back to factory fresh I've noticed the Aspect Ratio on the screen has changed is it just me or is the screen supposed to be bigger and not so squished together? Pic below of what im talking about also i've noticed that the Vista Theme has disappeared and i'm left with the Blue Theme as you can see above I cant find a way to change it back to black like at the bottom of the screen is again what can i do to get that back? i'm not so computer friendly so bear with me lol

The title bar is never black unless you've set the colour to black (which you can do in window colour and appearance), Aero just makes that and the taskbar translucent.
