    Because you have basic theme instead of Aero
    Try to change Window Appearence to Windows 7 Standard

    ROB, which edition of Windows 7 you use?
    As i remeber, Windows 7 Home Basic does not allows to aplly "Themes", e.g. file.theme.
    You can try another way.

    • Right click on Computer in Start menu
    • Choose "Properties"
    • Click on Advanced system settings on left
    • Go on Advanced tab
    • Click on Perfomance button
    • Go on Visual Effects tab
    • Tick Enable Composition checkbox

    I use Windows 7 Home Premium. My graphics card manufacture doesn't support the required WDM drivers for aero, so I'm stuck with windows basic. Even when I click one of the aero themes, the taskbar stays basic. Anyway, I did what you said and there is no "Enable Composition" check box, yet all of them are checked. I guess this program only works for Home Basic, hence the title.

    It works only with WDM drivers for aero. The application uses Aero/DWM for color changing. If no DWM/Aero available, its not possible to change color of Windows.
    In your case you can use third-party themes to change color of windows and taskbar. Usualy they shipped with both Aero and Basic resources. is good place to find themes.

    Sure, It works
    But every time you change your wallpaper, you have to click "wallpaper color" option again.
    If you want set color of windows to wallpapers aqutomatically, then use AeroWallpaperChanger software. It has similar option and tunes color of Windows automatically with every change of wallpaper.

    Yes, you able to change colors in Windows 7 Starter
    But first you need to install special patch "Aero Patch"
    It will unlock Aero for you as well as personalization features and you will even not need Home Basic Color Changer.
    Otherwise you can't change color of default theme in Windows 7 Starter

    Probably your video card drivers does not allow you to run Aero in 7 HB. It is required to change color of windows.

    does this affect the authenticity of my copy of windows? like, at a certain point in time, would there be "This copy of windows in not genuine" displayed at the bottom of my screen?

    Please help! The software worked fine for about a week, but yesterday I got an anti-virus installed and now the Color Changer won't work. I can't uninstall this anti-virus because I've already paid for it =( Is there a solution?
