Windows Desktop Manager

Hey, I've installed both driver packs for Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Evertime I start my comp the Desktop Manager crashes and I lose the aero effects. I have also followed a couple of tutorials on how to force the aero theme and that doesn't work either. Any one have any ideas on how to fix this?

Would help if I knew your specs but I have figured out that its my motherboard causing it. I tried another mobo I had lying around and the problem went away. Sorry for the bad news but you have 2 choices. Either live with out areo or buy a new mobo.
