    Default completely lost Aero features


    i've tried almost everthing that i can think of put i can't solve this
    proplem. while playing a mad session of homeworld2, i alt+tabbed to my
    desktop to look at other programs a coupla times. i think that was the
    only time i've ever alt+tabbed while playing hw2 because i usually
    winlogo+tab. anyway, when i finished playing i noticed the clear glass
    look was gone and all those other nifty little Aero feature were
    disabled.

    no biggie, right? just r click -> personalize -> theme -> win vis Aero,
    right? except, when i get to the theme diag box, there is no Areo
    option. whadda...?

    to make a long story short, i have:
    * downloaded an original Areo theme, thinking that mines is corrupted.
    * downloaded customized themes w/ aero features.
    * ran sfc /sannow to repair original system files.
    * looked for incompatible apps in task manager and msconfig.
    * started and restarted themes and dwmsm in Services.
    * tried to use restore point but all those where deleted.



    almost everything. about the only thing i haven't done is a full
    reinstall of vista (to drastic) or updated my video drivers (i can't.
    that's another thread).

    HELP!! this vista basic is horrible on the eyes!!!

    Pls see if How to re-enable Aero if it is not working helps you resolve the issue.
