    Change theme from aero to basic

    Hi Everyone

    We had to change the theme on our windows 7 machines because of an issue with Adobe fireworks and the aero theme so i tried to change it by GPO (See Picture)

    However now users are getting the classic grey startmenu which i dont want. New users though that haven't logged onto the PC before seem to be getting the correct theme. Is the settings i have correct or is there another way of changing it?

    Many Thanks

    We use the "Force a specific visual style file or force Windows Classic" to point to the Win7 Classic theme files. This seems to work well for us.

    The things is i dont want aero just the basic theme. It will use the load the basic.theme when a new user logs in but it will not use it for an existing user. instead it uses the classic.theme.

    What issue are you having with Fireworks? With ours, it just turns Aero off while Fireworks is open, then back on when you close it.

    We are using the CS3 package and the cursor is really jumpy and almost unusable
