  • Hi,

    Please check Themes services is starting. Press Win + R, type services.msc in Run and scroll down to Themes, then set it to Automatic.

    If this issue still occurs, try run SFC /scannow to fix corrupt system files in elevated privilege.

  • Hi!

    It sounds like the license to Windows 7 isn't activated. You have a free 30 day trial where everything is working from when you istall the OS. Then you need to activate the license to be able to use all functions.

    From where did you download the ISO?

    If you need to activate the license, follow the following steps:
