Aero disappeared? How can I get it back?

I just noticed it when I was using my comp today (my taskbar isn't transparent anymore). How can I fix this?

If you have any 3rd part toolbars, on taksbar remove it.

See if this helps

No, try again. Before you get to the screen that you showed me, on the prior screen you should see a box, to check (enable transparency)

Good, now where it says window color, click, and on the next screen, there will be a small box, to check, which says enable transparency.
