To enable transparency on your task bar and in the window items, you need to rate your computer.  To rate your computer, right click on My Computer icon on the desktop or go to Control Panel and select "system" ; click on it

From the system section,  click on rate your computer. It will take some time to rate. After rating, you can see a transparent taskbar, if your hardware is good enough to support  Windows Aero theme.

You may need to re run the rate test if you make any changes to the system such as installing new hardware ( such as separate VGA card, RAM, HDD. etc )

Hello Tanvir,

Well, you may be having all that but you still to ensure that your system drivers are up to date, all of them. You will therefore need to do the following to resolve that issue:

  • On your computer click start, and then locate the control panel and right click on it.
  • After that, click on properties and then locate "Device Manager" in the window that will open and then click on it.
  • In the device manager window, you will need to navigate through the drivers and update any that has got a question mark on them.
  • You will need to have internet connection to update the drivers.
