Need help with Aero ...

I have Aero turned off but I can still Peek. Under the taskbar properties the 'Use Aero ...' checkbox is check and also disabled. So I can not uncheck it.

How can I fix this? Thanks.

Try re-running the WEI assessment. If that doesn't allow you to renable Aero, try this: How to Turn On and Enable Aero in Windows 7 (Enable Aero Peek) My Digital Life

Hello McSeven,

In addition, you might also check in the different options in the tutorial below to make sure that Aero Peek is turned off in them as well.

Thanks very much everyone. I tried all and what fixed the problem was Option 3 from Aero Peek - Turn On or Off.
