How can I force the Windows 7 Aero theme to be active in an SCCM 2007 OSD Task Sequence?

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hello, I have created an SCCM OSD Task Sequence to upgrade our workstations from Windows XP to Windows 7.  When an existing user logs on to the machine after the upgrade - the applied theme looks like Windows XP.  I need to force the activation of the Windows 7 Aero theme during the TS process.

I am forcing the Windows 7 Aero theme via Group Policy, but that only applies to newly created profiles.

I am new to OSD and have had no luck in finding any articles on this.  Any assistance would be GREATLY appreciated.
