  • Aero is not available in Windows 7 Starter edition.
  • 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
  • 1 GB of system memory
  • A graphics card with support for DirectX 9 graphics with at least 128 MB of memory.
  • The graphics card must support Pixel Shader 2.0 and the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM).
  • Aero theme used.
  • The Desktop Window Manager Session Manager and Themes Services need to be set as Started and Automatic.
  • You must be have True Color (32 bit) set instead of High Color (16 bit).
  • Desktop composition needs to be enabled (checked) in Visual Effects.
  • Refresh or update your WEI score.

Try right click on Taskbar then click on properties and at the bottom of the page is a box
for you to check or uncheck "Use Aero to preview the desktop.
