Aero Theme disabled after crash RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer was accidently shut down due to external electrical problem.

    When I booted it again, it says "Failed to connect to windows service", the Aero Theme is gone, and the troubleshoot says Desktop Window Manager is disabled.

    I tried restarting dwm.exe but it didn't work.

    I tried simply choosing another theme but I couldn't click on them in Personalization.

    Can anyone please help? it's really annoying.
