Windows 7 Ultimate x64/Windows 8 Consumer Preview x64/Ubuntu 11.04

I'm assuming you mean Aero Peek, Snap and Shake? If so, the below tutorials should all help.

Aero Peek - Turn On or Off
Aero Snap - Turn On or Off
Aero Snap - Turn On or Off

If you also want Transparency:
Transparency - Enable or Disable

If none of the above work, try following the below tutorial.

If you download the latest diplay driver from the individual downloads tab and install it, Aero will turn on automactically.
