I'm so annoyed to find out that my newly bought laptop has this OS called Windows 7 Home Basic, that has no themes or any customization. While I'm a type of person that is to much particular of personalizing stuffs. I thought just because my OS is in windows 7, I could do everything that I want, but as you can see, Starter and Home Basic are those boring versions. So I search so hard just to customize my PC, and here are those helpful sites that had helped me.
First I searched in Google the keyword "Windows 7 Home Basic theme" and I saw themes that they say can be used for Home Basic, but as I've downloaded and attempted to enable it, nothing happened. Then I found this simply useful tool, called Windows 7 Home Basic color changer and your no themed PC can now change different colors that you would like, but still no glassy effect or something good in the eye. So I keep on searching for more.

Still nothing happened, I'm getting impatient this time though motivated so I still search and download Aero Enabler and here's the instruction: Aero Enabler instruction
Along with Aero is a tool called .net framework that is needed for the Aero to work out, so I downloaded it. I thought this is just a waste of time because after Aero and Tweak still nothing happened but I found out that it will also be important later on when you download this personalizing stuff.
In my case, only the Tweak me! helped me, because I found out that my Aero was already enabled. By using Tweak me I unchecked my "Disable Transparency" that will also be important later. Due to nothing happens on my target of customization, I search again in Google, now with the keyword "windows 7 home basic without personalize theme" because I have read in some forums that Home Basic and Starter has no personalize option in the Control Panel, oh wow surprise! That's why in my many attempts of enabling Aero nothing happens.
