Windows 7: Issue with Windows Desktop Manager and Windows Aero

Issue with Windows Desktop Manager and Windows Aero

Not sure if this is related to the driver, but I'm having an issue with the Windows Desktop Manager and Windows Aero.

When I start my computer up, Windows Aero flickers off after about a minute or so, it eventually comes back and stays but I'd like to stop this from happening. When it goes off I use the Aero troubleshooting feature and diagnosis what the problem is. The report says that the Desktop Windows Manager was disable, However I get no prompt of that occurring, and when I checked the the DWM it is set to automatic. As said Aero eventually returns after a few minutes or so, though it's obviously strange that it goes off in the first place with no warning of the DWM being disable or re-enabled. Any help is appreciated.

Sounds like one of your start up applications might be interfering.
