Windows 7 comes with one of the best UI features introduced on Windows Vista - Aero Interface. This interface requires much higher hardware than average computer, so for most users with old machines it will come turn off by default. If there is no chance to enable Aero on your computer with Personalize/Windows Colors, here is simple registry hack to force Windows 7 to use Aero interface:

1. Click on Start and type regedit at run
2. From left pane find and select the next registry key:


3. Right click on the right details pane, and create three DWORD (32-bit value) entry (bold only) and set value for each one:
UseMachineCheck - set value: 0.
Blur - set value: 0.
Animations - set value: 0.

4. Close Regedit
5. Now click Start and type CMD with administrative Priviliges
6. Next type:
Net Stop uxsms
Net Start uxsms

With this command you will stop already used and start new Desktop Window Manager Session with new options added in registry.

7. Final step is to enable Aero interface with right click on desktop and choose: Personalize/Windows Colors.

Clever solution. But downside of this trick might bring old computer to almost a halt. Aero is turned of with a reason so that it doesn't bog down already underpowered computer.
If you need Aero why not take a look at Linux Vixta . It runs glass effect on any integrated graphics card.
