Windows 7: DWM Doesn´t work

DWM Doesn´t work

Hey guys,

If you think that this is the first thing i´m doing to solve this problem, well no.
I tried almost every solution i could find on youtube, but still DWM won´t work and i hate the ugly standard theme.
But the part where i always get stuck is this, when i go to services to check if DWM is disabled i look for Desktop Windows manager.
But the strange thing is, it isn´t on that list =S
Now i am not a PC-expert and i just wouldn´t know what to do about this.
If you have any solutions or tips, please share them with me.

Peace, SilentSunday

Look in Task Manager. You should see dwm.exe under Processes.

SilentSunday has this problem existed since the pc was new/or when Windows 7 was first installed? If Windows Desktop Manager Session Manager is missing in services.msc, then there is a problem with the Windows installation. I'd suggest a repair install:
