    You'll need to change & select Aero from Control panel. Not in Vista right now so can't guide you through. Its somewhere in Control panel -> Appearance & Personalisation.

    1. The regedit has nthing to do with the Aero theme.

    2. Go to Control Panel -> Appearance & Person -> Personalization -> Theme here select Windows Vista.

    THen go to Windows Color & Appearance and enable transparency.

    Also check if you still have the default Aero theme. C:\windows\resources\themes there should be a Aero file.
