    4) Instructions for installing the theme.




    How To Install :


    1)         Extract        the          contents       of      the            downloaded           zip          file.
    2)   Double-click    on     the     file   named   “OneWorld.themepack”              to   apply   the      theme.
    3) Open %systemroot%\Windows\System32 folder. Locate and take ownership of the
    file Oobefldr.dll. Next rename this file as OobefldrOLD.dll, so that it remains as your backup
    should you ever need it. Now copy the Oobefldr.dll file from the theme folder into the System32
    folder.      This     will         give      you       a     new           looking        Welcome          Center.
    4)    Do      the    same         with Shell32.dll file.   This     will     change       the     Task       Pane.
    5) Reboot.




    Can my PC run Windows Aero (Themes)?
    Aero System requirements:
          The minimum requirements for Aero in Windows 7 is a DirectX 9
    graphic card that has 128MB RAM, Pixel Shader 2.0 and 32 bits per
    pixel.
          Additionally, you need a 1GHZ CPU and 1GB of RAM.
          A WDDM driver (Windows Display Driver Model) is required to
    run the Windows Aero Glass Theme.
    Windows Versions that support Aero (Themes):
          Windows 7 Home Premium,
          Windows 7 Professional,
          Windows 7 Ultimate,
          Windows Vista Home Premium,
          Windows Vista Business,
          Windows Vista Ultimate,
          Windows Vista Enterprise
Important: Windows 7 Home Basic does NOT support all Windows 7
Aero features, e.g. it can’t display any transparent effects.
Windows 7 does not enable Aero by default if it can’t find any video
driver that supports Aero or if your Experience Score is lower than ~3.
You can easily find out if your PC supports Aero (so that you can run
Aero themes, AeroPeek, AeroSnap and AeroShakre) by checking your
Experience Score, for that open up the control panel and then click on
“System”. The following window will popup and display your Windows
Experience Score:




Troubleshooting Aero + Themes
1. Open the Control Panel and then click on “Troubleshooting”:




2. Click on “Display Aero Desktop Effects“:




3. Follow the wizard by clicking on “Next”:
    4. It will auto-detect any display problems:




    It will list your current problems that may affect your display and will
    try to auto-repair them.
    Possible problems:
           The current theme does not support Aero
           Desktop Window Manager is disabled
           Video card doesn’t support required display settings
           Color depth is too low
           Transparency is disabled
           Mirror drivers don’t support Aero effects
           Current power settings don’t support Aero desktop effects
           Themes service isn’t running
           Aero effects not supported on this Windows edition
           Desktop Window Manager Sessions Manager service isn’t running
         The Windows Experience Index has not been computed




    If Windows 7 can’t find any errors, you should try to force-enable
    Aero. Proceed with the instructions below.


    Force Enable Aero in Windows 7
    If you are using a driver that does not support the WDDM (Windows
    Display Driver Model ) then you have to force-enable Aero on your PC.
    To do that we will create a registry key to enable Aero and then restart
    the Desktop Window Manager Sessions Manager.
    1. Open up the registry.
2. Uncollapse [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Wind
ows\DWM]
If you can’t seem to find the key, create the key. To create a
registrysubkey right-click on the Windows registry “folder” and click on
“New – Key”
If you followed my other Windows 7 tutorials, you will already know
how to create 32-bit registry keys.
3. We have to create 3 new DWORD (32-bit) keys:
“UseMachineCheck”, change the registry value to 0
“Blur”, change the registry value to 0
“Animations”, change the registry value to 0


Restart Desktop Window Manager Session
Manager
Type in services.msc into the search field on the Start menu. Scroll
down until you find the service “Desktop Window Manager Session
Manager”. Stop the service, then start it again. If you can’t seem to
figure out how that works, simply reboot.
You could also restart the service via Command Prompt:
net stop uxsms
net start uxsms


Firefox 3.6 Aero Theme Support
Firefox 3.6 now comes with FULL Aero support. Yep, Aero Peek now
supports Firefox tabs, which means that you can preview any tab via
the Aero feature, which is pretty handy. Unfortunately, Mozilla did not
enable this feature by default, so you have to enable it manually. I
wrote a how-to that explains how to enable full Aero in Firefox.
After all, you should be able to enable Aero and activate your Aero
theme. If you are looking for some nice Aero themes, check this
