yeah, it's harmless. in a nutshell, it just means that the program doesn't play well with aero, so windows disables aero until you close the program. (disabling aero give you windows basic display settings--mainly, no transparency)

but when you close the game out, aero, or should i say, transparency is re-enabled, right? different games and programs do that sometimes... i had that same problem with some games in vista too. my install of powerdvd does that now--don't know if there's any way around it--the programs just don't play well with the aero interface.
