Aero disabled?

So I recently installed this months batch of updates and after all is said and done with a restart my theme, aero, and animations for preview thumbnail and windows select screen are no longer working. I can't seem to reconfigure aero to work again and change my theme to the way it was. Anyone have this problem?

Type aero into the search window, and select "find and fix problem with transparency and other visual effects". Run the wizard that opens and see if it will fix the problems.

Thanks for the reply seekermesiter, I figured out my issue. It seems somehow my graphic card driver failed to update with the batch windows update. So I downloaded a up to date driver from nivida and it seems to solve my issue.
