What could be the problem, and/or how can I start uninstalling and reinstalling with a fresh setup, any help would be greatly appreciated, is there any temp files I should be cleaning up?
None of them are showing up, or just some?
Not everyone one but quite a few, for example if you look up Acryllic 7 under the windowblinds tab you see that the theme is opague when I download it it is solid
go to the WB enter face under Transparency at bottom and make sure you don't have any of them turned on hit the reset all words
hope this helps

No that didn't help either, it seems it only effects WB with transparency in them, it does't show as transparent, it shows as solid
Try to lower the "filter by" (at the left just under the pics of the skins) to 1 star and see if they appear.
What is your Windows Experience score? You may not get any transparency if that is not refreshed/redone.
(I'm assuming that the wndowblind itself applies solid, and it's not just the preview that's solid)
click on "about windowblinds" and from the screen that comes up click on "copy to clipboard" and then paste (cntr-v) that into your post. it may help people attempting to help you.
Xiandi where do I go to find my Windows experience score and yes the windowblinds do apply as solid
drjbhl changing the WB's to 1 star seems to be helping, is there a way to make this apply to all my WB's at once or do I have to do them 1 at a time
It will also give you this information

Wizard I did change the stars ratings to 1 but I can change them back. then how do I go about changing the ratings filter for WB config to 1 or 0
If you load Windows Aero By Microsoft the 2nd skin
does it make you window borders Transparent?
if not try this:
click on the Start menu type AERO click on > Enable or disable transparent glass on windows <
a new window will open right under the pink glass is a check box make sure it is check.
if that was or did not help try this
click on the Start menu type AERO click on > Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects <
Hope this helps... good luck !
DisturbedComputer tried what you told me and no change, thanks for the suggestion
Does taskmanager show that dwm.exe is running?
To manually start the desktop windows manager, click on the CMD shortcut from Start/Programs/Accessories/Command Prompt and type net start uxsms
To change the star rating just click on the first star in Filter by for a 1 and on the area between "Filter by" and the first star for none.
You should see "Filter by ***** and higher" when you open WindowBlind Configuration in the middle left of that screen. Just click the first star.
move your mouse pointer over the stars until you have the setting that you want, then left click to save thesetting.
I'm sorry Wizard but I don't quite understand what you mean, I got to a comd prompt and typed what you said to and it came back with the answer that the program is allready running. Sorry for not understanding
That tells what we needed to know, it is running. Sorry I can't be of any more help.
I finally got the star thing straight and now things are looking great. Thank you to every one for all your help
