Enable Aero Transperancy

I am not sure what i did.But when i did something and put the mouse on an open program it does this. I don't know why this keeps happening to me but the aero's transparency turns off and then I can't turns it back on



When i want this


How can i get the latter back?

Hello sailor,
  1. You will want to make sure your graphics card is updated. You haven't listed it in your specs so I can't help you find the right driver yet
  2. After you install the right driver, update your WEI score: Click here for a How-to
  3. If it doesn't automatically change to Aero - make sure you have all important windows updates installed, and make sure you have all drivers for your system installed (go to device manager and make sure nothing has a yellow exclaimation mark on it)
  4. Lastly, RIGHT-click your desktop and select "Personalize". Select any Aero theme and see if that fixes the problem. Post back with any questions or problems you encounter

Alright.

Did you have any hardware changes recently?
Applied any custom themes?

Follow Dustys good advice and keep us posted.

you "turned on themes"? Please explain how. Was this a service in the Services control panel?
What do you mean "Desktop Windows Manager"? And how did you turn it on?

Was there any previous settings you changed that would cause this? Was it a program or setting?

I had AVG turn off themes and then everything went all ugly and old fashion looking. Then I uninstalled it and set my theme to an aero theme and now I'm in the current predicament

In services there is a service called "Themes" and another called "Desktop Window Manager Session Manager"
I turned those both on by going into services.

Type "Device Manager" without quotes into your start menu search bar and click the highlighted program, as in the picture:

Then See if there are yellow exclaimation marks of any kind anywhere, as in this picture:
