Enabling Aero Requires Restart
So, this issue has popped up recently where I can't seem to re-enable aero without restarting the whole system. It gets turned off for a number of reasons, from programs crashing (itunes) to the crappy Cyberlink Blu-Ray software turning it off, but where it used to come back on its own, or at least let me get at it from the personalization menu, it will only let me use windows basic.
Choosing an Aero theme in personalization does nothing but change the Window Color icon from the windows 7 basic to the custom color icon . Basic persists, and the new icon, though Aerotastic in appearance still to the windows basic color options.
So far I've tried:
updating the video card driver
restarting themes from services.msc
restarting Desktop Window and Session Manager
logging off and back on
re-calculating the user experience index
But the only thing that will bring aero back is a complete restart. So, I'd be grateful to know if any of you have had a similar problem or any idea how to fix it
