Update the driver for your video card .. problem Aero

Hello I'm new with you
Use the Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit, but Aero is enabled and whenever I want to do comes to me this:

The current video card may support Aero with a driver that is compliant with the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM). Contact the manufacturer of your computer or video card for a WDDM-compatible driver.

What is the solution my brothers

First it would help to post the make \model of your graphics card, also if possible the current driver version.
If you don't mind me suggesting, posting in all Bold or Caps is not considered polite.

Use the Intel Auto updater if you don't know what Intel Chip you have

It will notify you of any supported Win7 drivers for your chip

Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
 
 

That on board graphics chip does not support Aero.

You can scan for drivers here;
