Windows 7: Aero Transparency, can't restore or correct

Aero Transparency, can't restore or correct

I'm at my whits end attempting to fix the Aero Transparency issue (running Win7 64bit Home Premium). I've tried clicking on the Windows 7 Areo Theme to try and default it. I've run the Transparency Trouble Shooter and selecting Apply/Advance Repair.

I've gone into the Desktop Session Manager to a Start, although I don't have the option to Start, only Restart or Stop. So I've stopped and tried to Start, with not effect.

I've removed LogMeIn and TeamViewer. I've removed/uninstalled/driver cleaned the Nvida Drivers and downloaded the most recent update. I have a NVidia GeForce GTX 480. Its set on 1920x1200 32bit.

I'm completely stumped.

Rerun your experience index.
I know it sounds silly but it once fixed a similar problem on a friends machine.

If Maguscreed's suggestion doesn't work, there are 2 more suggestions I'd have:

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Repair Install

Do me a favor and add the word laptop or desktop to the “system manufacturer” block.

I appreciate all the suggestions. After a fresh look at it this morning and going through filling out my Spec profile as Karlsnooks suggested, I discovered in the Device Manager that I had a LogMeIn Mirror Driver (under display adapters). Ironically, I was getting a 'Mirror Error' when running the Transparency Trouble Shooter.

So I went into the adapter tab and Uninstalled the LogMeIn Mirror Driver and I'm back to normal! Typically I'd just remove LogMeIn each time I used it and it would correct itself. This time it was a little more stubborn. On a side note, another common UI type issue I get often is having to rebuild the Icon Cache.

Many thanks for the feedback.

I suggest you run sfc /scannow.

WIN | tupe CMD.EXE | do NOT hit ENTER |
right-click on cmd.exe in the display list and choose Run as administrator

That part is referred to as "running from an elevated command prompt".

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

type following and hit enter:
SFC /SCANNOW

If SFC (system file checke) shows no integrity violations found, you are ok. Otherwise, reboot your computer and run sfc /sannow again and reboot after the second time around again.
