I have recently been granted admin rights on my work computer.
While the computer was locked down, the Aero visual effects were set to "adjust for best performance".
I can change it to "adjust for best appearance" and the Aero effects appear - until I reboot the computer. After the reboot, the checkbox is still set to "adjust for best appearance" however, the effects are disabled. I have to change the setting, change it back to best appearance and hit OK. Then everything works again.
The friend in IT who granted the admin rights told me that this is due to the group policy our company has set up - and that there is nothing he can do about it.
I have checked gpedit and regedit but could not find any relevant entries.
Do you have any idea how I could automagically adjust the settings back to best appearance after every reboot? I was thinking that if I cannot turn of the group policy myself, then maybe I could write some sort of script that changes to appearance settings for me (instead of me having to do it manually every time).
Looking forward to your thoughts
