Aero turned off after tweaking and reboot

Guide * Windows 7 Ultimate Tweaks & Utilities *

I was recently following this thread to optimize and tweak my desktop a little bit, and even though I avoided the parts of the thread involving disabling Aero, it has disabled itself anyway and I can't seem to get it working again.

When I go to personalize, it says:
Troubleshoot problems with transparency and other Aero effects

Code:

Welcome to Seven Forums alkajak. The word "tweak" raises my hackles If you have a System Restore Point from before your tweaks, I would use that 1st.

System Restore

If you run the System File Checker, it should correct this. be aware it will undo various theme mods and you will have to repatch to reapply any custom themes.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Thanks, running the file checker now, before a system restore. Will this reset all the settings I have changed for faster boot, faster SSD, registry changes, etc etc?

It will replace system files, it should not change settings unless they changed Windows 7 system files. I'd have tried a SR point 1st. A Guy
