Windows 7: DWM doesn´t work

DWM doesn´t work

Hey guys,

If you think that this is the first thing i´m doing to solve this problem, well no.
I tried almost every solution i could find on youtube, but still DWM won´t work and i hate the ugly standard theme.
But the part where i always get stuck is this, when i go to services to check if DWM is disabled i look for Desktop Windows manager.
But the strange thing is, it isn´t on that list =S
Now i am not a PC-expert and i just wouldn´t know what to do about this.
If you have any solutions or tips, please share them with me.

Peace, SilentSunday

From your post it is clear that you have tried all the available tricks to activate aero ... but all failed . So you may try another one trick ( few years ago this trick enabled aero in my cousin sister's computer , and it was done by me ; not sure whether it will work for 7 or not ) .

Download a trial of TuneUp Utilities (2011 version . The olders dont work with win 7 themes ) and install it . Now download a third party theme from Browsing Visual Styles 7 on deviantART . Now open Tuneup, Cilck on Customize Windows tab , and Personalize the appearance link thereto .

In the resulting window, there is inference at the bottom of the left pane, click on visual style link there .

Now click on the Add button, select " load visual style from a file, browse to your downloaded theme (to the msstyle file), and when it is loaded, click on apply .

I expect it should work . Whatever it may be , post back the result .

EDIT: If it enables aero, you may easily uninstall Tuneup then .
