Aero Peek is getting disabled

Aero Peek is getting disabled after logging out or after locking my computer.
I am needed to enable it again. Rebooting also doesn't help.

Thank you for any help.

Would be nice if we knew your hardware. Please enter your system specs in the lower left corner of your posts.

Hi gsphanikumar and welcome

What are the specifications for the GMA 4500 chipset. Minimum specs for win 7 aero are 256 mb integrated plus shared. Does this chipset support aero?

Thanks

There was probably a reason why the admin disabled it. I dont know of any other way to enable it, and frankly you should be talking with the admin as to his reasons, and if he would let you do it.

Let us know if we can be of any further help
