OK, I've loaded FSX on my new computer (see sig).
When FSX starts I get a window tell me the color scheme changed to win 7 basic. and will change back after ending program.
Why?? Crying or Very sad
It talks about "Aero Themes" and have run it's trouble shooter. and finds nothing wrong.
It worked OK on older computer (6yrs old) with XP

I bought this computer thinking it would run FSX better & faster also being able to turn up the settings for FSX.

This is normal.

FSX automatically has compatibility settings that disables Windows Vista's and Windows 7's Aero Glass to help save resources while flying.
