win 7 home premium
Same problem just won't go back till a reboot

I pretty much have the same problem. I understand the older games might cause the problem but they also won't return me back after I finish with the programs that do this unless I reboot. Is there a way to get back the aero experience other than rebooting? If there is I can't find it.

Windows 7 Enterprise 32bit

I know this is a really old thread but i have this problem too. I figured out how to fix it though. Go into your graphics properties and it should have put your colour quality onto 16 bit, change it back to 32bit or watever it was before and that should fix it

windows 7 64bit

With some video programs like quicktime alternative, you need to go into settings and look for direct show rendering. on quicktime "overlay mixer" will cause windows to change from aero to basic. changing the setting to "vmr9 renderless" will stop this from happeneing. directshow will cause the switch so look for those setings if your video player causes problems.
